Parenting Teens: Staying in relationship when things get tough...! - via Zoom

Description:

Parenting children whose early histories include separation, loss, attachment disruption and other traumas can become very challenging during adolescence. It also becomes more effective and satisfying when the relationship is kept central amidst all the challenges. Denise and Zach will address how to do to this when responding to many common behaviours adoptive parents and permanent carers face once their children reach the puberty and teenage years. This training will focus on what to do and say, and how to promote a calmer home environment for all - with plenty of examples and time for questions.

Please note: this is a 2 day training course taking place on
Friday 5 and Friday 12 November 2021 from 10.00am to 12.30pm

Who should attend

Adoptive parents, foster parents, special guardians and other parents of teens with histories of early trauma/adversity

Speakers

Denise Golding and Zach Gomm are certified instructors in Bryan Post’s ‘Great Behaviour Breakdown’ (GBB); they teach this Relational Parenting model throughout the UK and Ireland to parents and professionals. Denise has 30+ years’ experience as a senior social work practitioner, counsellor and supervisor, including 20+ years in adoption (in Statutory as well as Independent and Voluntary Agencies). Denise also trained in in DDP, Theraplay®, Mindfulness and a number of other therapeutic approaches. Zach is an experienced foster carer and adoptive parent, and has extensive experience of the everyday challenges of parenting teens with trauma backgrounds. Zach has also trained in Theraplay®, DDP and Mindfulness.

Both Denise and Zach offer follow-on online and face-to-face therapeutic parenting support to parents who have attended their training. Denise and Zach will soon be launching their ‘Love-based’ parenting facilitation programme (Train the trainers) for parents and professionals interested in spreading the word

  3. Learn to keep the focus on the process rather than the outcome
  4. Develop more awareness of the importance of influence rather than control
  5. Learn practical strategies and techniques from trainers who have been there, done that!
