Description

Friday 25th January 2019 – 15th March 2019 (no session 22nd Feb - half term)

This 7 week course is an adapted version of our ‘Time Out for Special Needs’ course and has attachment theory underpinning all modules.

This course is open to parents/carers with long term placements including adopters, long-term foster carers, special guardians and kinship carers of children and young people who have experienced trauma of separation or loss and have special needs and/or disabilities who are living in Reading, Wokingham or West Berkshire. We are able to offer two places to clients living in East Berkshire. This event is free thanks to funding from The Big Lottery. Other areas of PSC work receive no funding at all, for example our Helpline, so we are always grateful for any donations however large or small.

This course runs on Friday mornings between 10.30am and 12.30pm on the following dates: 25th Jan, 1st, 8th and 15th Feb, break for half-term, 1st, 8th and 15th Mar.

Topics covered include:

– Impact of trauma
– Symptom overlap with ASD/ADHD
– Building blocks of Attachment
– Therapeutic Parenting
– Understanding & managing behaviour
– Life story work
– School issues for LAAC, EHCP, Pupil Premium etc.
– Secondary trauma to carers

The course will be facilitated by specialist parenting practitioners Zobia Kalim and Luanne Smallman.
