SPACE – Supporting Parents And Children Emotionally
About the course
Every person is different. Every person has gone through a different life journey. Some people go through traumatic events in their lives that can affect them forever. It can lead to how they parent their own children. A parent’s experiences can have dramatic effects on their parenting behaviour and children’s development.
The SPACE programme assists parents to recognise or be aware of their own trauma and how this may be influencing their own parenting style.
The Programme uses a psycho educational model to educate and inform parents or carers on why children behave the way they do and how, as adults, we can support them. It is suitable for children and parents using universal care services and specialist services and its aim is to provide an intervention before significant difficulties arise or support parents/carers in acknowledging they may need further help.
The course is designed to increase parents knowledge and understanding of
The link between emotions & behaviours.
Strategies to continue to develop individual and family resilience.
How to develop tools to implement healthy lifestyle choices for individuals and families.
