Event description
This workshop is designed for family members and friends of adoptive families.

About this Event

The half-day workshop is likely to be of interest to the family’s wider support network and will help them understand the impact of early trauma, neglect and substance misuse on children who are adopted.

Some adoptive families tell us that their families and friends struggle to understand the support needed when times get tough.

Participants will consider what happens to a child physically, emotionally and psychologically as a result of difficult early life experiences and find out more about therapeutic parenting and why “love isn’t enough” and “all children don’t do that”.

By the end of this half-day workshop participants will have:

  • Found out more about the Adoption Process
  • Considered what adoption means for the wider family
  • Considered the impact of early trauma, neglect and substance misuse on children who are adopted
  • Discussed the support needed by adoptive families
  • Looked at some therapeutic parenting strategies and why these are important
  • Thought about where to go to ask questions

Comments from previous participants:

“Very helpful information about where to access help. Useful references to books and handouts.”

“It was really good. Real life examples were helpful.”

“Really great training course which answered a lot of questions going forward to help support child.”

“Now I understand what therapeutic parenting means and why my daughter says it’s different to how she was brought up.”

“I’m going to offer to look after my friend’s son once a month at the weekend so she can spend time with her other child. I didn’t realise how important all this attachment stuff was.”
