Join the National Association of Therapeutic Parents and become part of a supportive community dedicated to empowering parents of children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences or whose children present with neurodivergent characteristics.
We’ve had parents say to us that the children themselves, if they do have a very out-of-control moment when they become violent that it really impacts on their feelings of shame and hurt afterwards. So in a way, allowing the child to be violent is compounding some of the causes associated with their behaviour. Perhaps stopping their violent behaviour sooner – and in a smart and intelligent way – can really help with modelling different behaviours and helping the child to deal with those feelings. The PST provides a six-week Foundations for Attachment group which supports the parenting of traumatised children. This is complemented by an 18-week Nurturing Attachments Group, provided by our children in care CAMHS colleagues. Fostering Devon is on the way to changing this negative language with the help of our children in care!

This edition also features an interview with the NATP’s Glynis Hough who has many years of successful fostering experience but who recently experienced great anguish when her foster daughter left the family for good. Most are based on principles of building safe, strong relationships that combine affection and comforting along with clear behavioural expectations and routines, ‘ explains Hughes. ‘Therapeutic parenting is especially developed for parenting children who manifest special needs, whether they be based on stressful or traumatic life events or constitutional factors.’ What supports our children to heal and grow is a safe and healthy attachment bond with a care giver who offers them a safe base from where they can go and explore the world. There’s plenty of good advice here on effective de-escalation techniques and Jane also refers to two courses* provided by the National Association of Therapeutic Parents (the NATP) as well as to the non-violence resistance courses available through many local authorities in the UK.
