Living with an angry child: how are you doing: a chance to ‘check in’ with Holly van Gulden - Leeds


Livint with an angry childA chance to work with Holly van Gulden! If you have put the strategies Holly suggested when you attended her workshop last year, the year before or any time previously into practice to help you live with your angry child this is your opportunity to come and ‘check in’ with Holly. There will also be a space for Holly to help you internalise permanence and constancy so that you can identify behaviours in your child which represents deficits in these areas. You will go home with a reappraisal of your parenting and a whole series of new strategies. A NEW and very exciting follow-up workshop.

This workshop is designed to provide a space for those who have attended Holly’s ‘Living with an Angry Child’ workshop to ‘check in’ with Holly and discuss with her what has happened since they attended the workshop (that could be in 2013, 2012 or years before).
Holly will discuss with delegates which of the strategies she suggested:

  • they have tried
  • what has worked and will
  •  answer any questions delegates may have

There will be a brief review of object permanence and object constancy.
The workshop will combine discussion and practical activities. It will teach delegates how to offer value and joy in the face of difficult times/days

Who should attend

Adoptive parents and other permanent carers
Social workers and other professionals working in adoption and permanency


Internationally renowned counsellor and speaker Holly van Gulden has been training adoptive and foster parents and professionals for over 24 years. Holly's refreshing blend of humour and compassion has led her to be invited back repeatedly to speak at PAC.

Holly is an adoptive parent and grew up in a multi-racial, international family comprised of six children born to the family, four adopted children and several foster brothers and sisters. This experience has given Holly an extra insight into what it’s like to grow up adopted and to parent through adoption.

Benefits of attending

Delegates will have the opportunity to enjoy a highly interactive learning experience with Holly: an opportunity to return to material they have put into practice since attending the workshop for the first time.
Delegates will:
• Review their ‘Angry Child’ parenting strategies with Holly
• Talk about their own experiences of implementing the strategies
• Work with the ‘Parts’ of their child causing concern– using ‘parts’ language only
• Internalise the concepts of permanence and constancy by reviewing which behaviours in their children represent deficits in permanence and constancy. This will produce a whole series of new strategies for delegates to use with their children
