Parenting with PACE - London

Description:

Playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy are the cornerstones for helping nurture a closer relationship with your child: this approach to parenting is called PACE.

This public seminar for parents and professionals, presented by Lynne Davis, is a MUST ATTEND workshop for all parents and carers who would like to develop a deeper relationship with their child, and for all professionals who support parents and carers regarding the parenting of their child.

PACE, stemming from Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), is a successful approach to parenting children who have experienced trauma. The day will introduce the principles of PACE and allow attendees to explore its role in parenting. Parenting with PACE helps to provide appropriate boundaries, together with warmth and nurture; the connection that PACE creates means that this parenting is received as unconditional.

Using her experience of working with adopters and other permanent carers, Lynne will discuss how the elements of PACE can be combined with behaviour management skills, whilst very much coming from the perspective of attachment, loss and  developmental trauma.

Who should attend

Adoptive parents and other permanent carers, and all professionals that support them.

Lynne Davis is a UKCP and HCPC registered Integrative Arts Psychotherapist, Adolescent Therapeutic Counsellor and Occupational Therapist. Lynne works privately after leaving the NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service where she worked for over 10 years.

Lynne also provides training in DDP informed parenting for adoptive parents and professionals. She published a chapter in “Helping adolescents with anger and low self-esteem” edited by Dr Margot Sunderland.

  2. Understand PACE and its role in parenting
