Adoptionplus are running three one-day ‘Parenting with PACE – Workshop for Adoptive Parents’ this year.
PACE is a highly successful approach for working with children who have experienced trauma in their attachment relationships. The trainings will introduce the principles of PACE, 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.
They will be run by Dr Kate Mason or Dr Ann Laight, Clinical Psychologists and DDP PACE Trainers (supported by DDP Connects UK).
The first will be held on 13 February 2020, with subsequent workshops on 7 May 2020 and 8 October 2020. All are run by Adoptionplus at Moulsoe Business Centre, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. Tickets cost £110 (+VAT) and include lunch and refreshments.
These workshops are aimed at parents who are parenting a child with insecure attachments. This includes adoptive parents, foster carers and professionals who support these groups. Approved adopters are also welcome to attend.

What is a DDP PACE Trainer?
A DDP PACE Trainer (supported by DDP Connects UK) is someone who has been nominated by a Certified DDPI approved Trainer, has completed DDP Level One and Two training and is receiving regular supervision from a Certified DDPI approved Trainer.
The DDP PACE Trainer will provide training which meets the needs of the organisation requesting the training whilst also ensuring that it covers the core elements of the PACE training as developed by DDP Connects UK.
DDP PACE Trainings can cover one or two days, and aim to inform practitioners, parents and carers about PACE, and to help them to explore how they can bring the attitude of PACE into their practice and parenting.
