Course Information

Developed by Clinical Psychologist Dr. Dan Hughes, PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy)  is a successful approach to working with children who have experienced trauma.

This one day workshop will introduce the principles of PACE and allow parents the opportunity to practice using PACE and to explore it’s role in parenting as well as reflecting on their own personal experiences.

The different elements of PACE will be discussed 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 the training 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. Approved adopters are also welcome to attend.
