SET Connects Therapeutic Services Workshops

SET Connects are offering a series of three workshops:

Using short presentations, discussion, small group exercises and videos each session will aim to:

  • Increase your understanding of the children you live with
  • Give you the opportunity to share your experiences of caring for the children in your home with other parents and carers
  • Help you think about how you might start to take some of the theory and use it to support children.

Brain Development and Trauma

We will talk about what research shows us about the impact of trauma and neglect on brain development throughout childhood. You will then have the opportunity to think about what you may notice in the children in your care.

Introduction to Attachment

This session will provide an introduction to Attachment theory and give you the chance to consider your understanding of the children in your home.

Building Attachments

This session will aim to explore how we might start to apply our understanding of Attachment theory and trauma in building relationships with children through therapeutic re-parenting. You will be able to think about some of the challenges you might face and to practice some strategies in small groups.

To get the most out of the training, we would recommend that participants aim to attend all three sessions if possible.
