Parenting with PACE, Milton Keynes
Understanding how Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy can help to build a closer relationship with your child
Date: 8th October 2018 | Time: 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Empathy and playfulness, acceptance and curiosity are the cornerstones for helping nurture a closer relationship with your child: this approach to parenting is called PACE.
This workshop for parents presented by Dr Ann Laight is a must for parents who would like to develop a deeper relationship with their child.
PACE is a successful approach to working with children who have experienced trauma. The day will introduce the principles of PACE and allow attendees to explore its role in parenting. Parenting with PACE provides appropriate boundaries, together with warmth and nurture; the connection that PACE creates means that this parenting is received as unconditional.
Ann will discuss the different elements of PACE and how they can work together as a parenting attitude.
This will include how to combine PACE with behaviour management skills, becoming a more mind-minded parent, exploration of why children are insecure, attachment patterns, developmental trauma and therapeutic parenting. The course will provide parenting principles to enable parenting of insecure children.
Who is this for?
This course is aimed at parents who are parenting a child who has insecure attachments. This includes adoptive parents, foster carers and professionals who support these groups.
