Therapeutic Re-Parenting training

Therapeutic re-parenting is designed to heal a child who has experienced trauma. We can assume that all children coming into care have suffered trauma and would benefit from therapeutic re-parenting – just the act of being taken away from your parent(s) and transplanted into a completely unfamiliar family is enough to cause a child to panic that they might not survive this transplant or the shame that goes with such a life-event.
Therapeutic re-parenting is not a place you reach by going just a bit further down the parenting route. It requires a different skill set and a capacity for self-reflection, plus the ability to park your own needs/feelings – all of which have to be learnt. This course will explain therapeutic re-parenting and PACE and will provide some ideas on the skills that are needed to support children and young people.
