Online Therapeutic Parenting Programme

This is an 8 session programme that can either run consecutive weeks or on a fortnightly basis depending on the needs of the family. The success of the programme is dependent on the investment and commitment of the parents to be able to consistently implement the strategies.

The aim of the programme is to help parents to develop an in-depth understanding of what drives the responses, reactions, and behaviours of their child and how this can impact on their own responses and reactions as well as blocking the positive parenting that they are trying to implement. Understanding the impact on the child’s survival system in their early experience (including in utero) helps parents to develop a more empathic response based on what is happening in that moment for the child rather than why is their child doing this.

Strategies and interventions that have been successfully implemented with families for over 20 years will be shared and explored throughout the programme. Parents will be set tasks between sessions with an expectation that they will invest in implementing the guidance and advice to facilitate re-experience for the child and develop a greater sense of safety and stabilisation within the present attachment relationships.

Completing this programme and developing the consistent therapeutic skills and responses through speech, reflection, attunement, empathy and self- awareness will help to create a stronger foundation for coping with the stresses that life presents.

What the course covers?

  • Understanding the need for co-regulation to develop and strengthen the child’s ability to regulate.
  • Developing trust to address the need for control.
  • Developing skills to help parents connect and re-direct.
  • Understanding how to address the need to survive before focusing on the survival behaviours.
  • The importance of consistent, empathic, positive and attuned responses as well as skills to re-attune if things go wrong.
  • Understanding Re-enactment and how this can result in blocked care.
  •  Getting out of the trauma swing.
  • Separating what was from what is by using language that validates what they experienced before noticing what they experience now.
