Riding the rollercoaster

Riding the Rollercoaster

A new online workshop for adopters who have been home with their children for about six months i.e. have adopted within about the last 18 months.

We acknowledge how hard things can be in the months after your child comes to live with you, and so often still are. So throughout the session, we will be reflecting on how your own emotional well-being is essential to helping your child. We will also cover:

— The importance of life story work

— The need to start early and ways to begin

— A brief look at managing contact with the birth family

— Some key ways to understand the complexities of your child

— Some ideas about how to respond to your child and nurture their development

— How to keep yourselves and your child safe

This online workshop will be delivered jointly by Dr Helen Kirkaldie & Dr Jude Courtney, Clinical Psychologists with the CCS Therapy Team, and Lindy Wootton & Eve Payne Social Workers from the CCS Sharing Stories Service.
