As part of our commitment to offering long-term, outstanding adoption support to everyone who adopts with us, we have a continuous programme of training and events available for our adopters. Here's a sample of what's coming up in the next few weeks:

 

Teens Group, 29th September

This group offers children and young people the opportunity to take part in fun activities, discuss issues regarding adoption, make new friends, develop social skills and confidence and contribute towards the development of our services for young people.

  

Existing Children, 8th October

This workshop is intended for prospective adopters who have existing children (birth, adopted, step-children) in the family. The aim of this workshop is to help prospective adopters to understand how their children will be involved in the adoption process.

 

Understanding Children's Behaviour, 15th October

This therapeutic workshop offers adoptive parents the opportunity to explore what behaviours their children are presenting with in a safe and empathic environment. The aim is to learn more about why they may present with certain behaviours.

 

Siblings Workshop, 30th October 2018

This workshop explores sibling placements, helping you to consider meeting the needs of more than one child. The session also focuses on key issues to consider for siblings, placing this within the context of adoption, and highlighting strategies for managing anticipated difficulties.
