This programme has been developed in conjunction with adoptive parents. It helps adoptive parents develop the skills and confidence to support their child's emotional development and wellbeing, to maximise their potential. The programme is aimed at adopters approved and waiting, adopters who have children placed with them and adopters who have adopted children.
The workshops will be delivered by members of the multi-disciplinary post adoption team, including clinical therapists as well as external speakers.
