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:

Existing Children in the Family Workshop, 9th April 2018

This workshop is aimed at 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. It also offers them useful tools and strategies to help prepare the existing child and has a young person’s personal experience of when her siblings joined the family.

Understanding Children's Behaviour Workshop, 17th April 2018

This one day workshop will encourage adopters to think about specific aspects of children’s behaviour from a historical and attachment perspective. It's an opportunity to reflect on behaviours and consider therapeutic responses. It's also a chance for adopters to come together and find support in shared experiences. The workshop is aimed at parents of children of all ages with all manner of presenting behaviours.

Friends and Family Workshop, 5th May 2018

This session is specifically designed for friends, family and other significant people within an adopter's or prospective adopter's support network. The half-day workshop will raise their awareness and understanding of the adoption process, the needs of adopted children and how they can offer the most effective help and support to them on their way to becoming adoptive parents.
