A concise, clear overview of Therapeutic Parenting with integrated links to short inspirational, often humorous videos, demonstrating practical applications of therapeutic parenting techniques. Suitable for all carers, parents and supporting professionals working with children who have suffered early life trauma. Sarah Naish uses her first hand experience to clearly explain the differences between 'standard' parenting and 'therapeutic' parenting, with case studies and examples of good therapeutic parenting strategies, along with practical applications. Written with the busy parent and supporting professional in mind, this short book provides answers for all those caring for children with attachment difficulties, explaining why we need to parent our children differently, common additional challenges faced by Therapeutic Parents, and the best way to resolve them. The book may be read as a 'stand alone' document, but used in conjunction with the videos and video based courses, it provides a powerful foundation in caring for children who have suffered early life trauma. The author provides essential advice to supporting professionals about overcoming blocked care, and helping Therapeutic Parents to stay connected to their child. This book contributes to the new Level 3 Diploma in Therapeutic Parenting, which will be launched by Fostering Attachments Ltd, (Inspire Training Group) in the Autumn of 2016.

How can we help heal children who have been abused or neglected? Healing Child Trauma Through Restorative Parenting details how children can be helped to recover with the use of Restorative Parenting, an innovative model informed by psychological and neurological understanding of trauma and its effects. It explains the critical role that people, relationships and the environment play in a child's recovery. It shows what constitutes a therapeutic environment, whereby a child experiences therapy not as one-to-one sessions but as a lived experience. The authors show how other components of the model - building therapeutic relationships, promoting positive education and encouraging clinically informed life style choices - are intimately linked, each critical to the re-parenting which the child undergoes. This book will be welcomed by professionals working with children, including those in residential, health and foster care, psychology, education and health, as well as those commissioning services. The models, concepts and practices are transferable to public, private and charitable agencies.

A "must have" resource for those who are embarking on the diploma, this book will be a useful addition to the bookshelf of anyone involved in the field of therapeutic parenting. This is a handbook for Therapeutic Parents - in other words, all those living with a child that has suffered from early trauma (developmental trauma) whether biological, foster or adoptive parents, Special Guardians or care staff in residential settings. Professionals and extended family helping to support families living with a traumatised child will also benefit from reading this book. The handbook follows the format of the Diploma in Therapeutic Parenting which is an accredited Diploma available to all parents and professionals. As a result the content of the book covers a wide range of subjects related to Therapeutic Parenting (TP): Understanding your traumatised child; understanding myself; Knowledge and understanding of Therapeutic parenting; Syndromes, Disorders and survival behaviours; Implementing strategies (basic and advanced); Working with others; Adolescence; Self care; Therapeutic models and the impact on siblings are all considered. Each subject area is explained, examples are given where appropriate, and the reader is directed to websites or other resources for further reading about specialist subjects. Throughout the book the perspective of the traumatised child is examined with a view to develop deeper understanding of the many challenges faced and how this impacts on the family. The self care chapter encourages family members to remember to take care of their own physical and mental health as an essential part of parenting such a child. The Diploma was developed as a concept by Sarah Naish (Founder of Fostering Attachments Ltd and the National Association of Therapeutic Parents) and Sair Penna. Jane Mitchell (author) was drafted in to support the development and completion of this task. This means that the Diploma has been written by three Therapeutic Parents - Foster, Biological and Adoptive, and thus a unique and intimate knowledge of life in a family where there has been trauma is incorporated throughout the book. The three of us will obviously still have a limited viewpoint, but this has been extended by our experiences in delivering support and training to adoptive and foster families over many years, and hearing their stories, as well as the research and professional development we have undertaken.

While the children seemed happy on the outside, deep inside they were suffering from the hidden trauma that so many adopted children carry with them. Because of the rejection, neglect, and abandonment they experience in the first few months of life, some adopted children are imprinted with the subconscious belief that at their core they are unlovable and worthless, even if their new parents are nurturing and loving. What Every Adoptive Parent Needs to Know offers adoptive parents and parents-to-be a solution. By following the threads of the Richards’ moving story, clarified by insightful analysis and practical advice from family therapist Kate Cremer-Vogel, readers of this compelling book discover it is never too late to heal the wounded heart of a child. This remarkable true-life story of raising two adopted children is a tale of hope and resilience, of two parents unprepared for their children’s psychological wounds that only time would reveal. Most importantly, it shows that profound healing is possible when adoptive families realize that traditional parenting is not enough.
