Date & Time:

Tuesday 29 November 2022 (09:30 - 11:30)




Target group

This course is targeted to Foster Carers who work for the London Borough of Sutton. 


The aims of this session are to offer an insight into PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, Empathy), a model of caring and parenting developed by Dan Hughes. It is ideal for admin teams, commissioners and workers not dealing directly with children and young people that have experienced trauma. The training covers Attachment theory and the impact of trauma and developmental trauma in a way that allows you to appreciate and put into perspective why we have to deal with the challenging behaviours of children especially looked after children. It also explores how PACE can create and support secure attachments with children and young people who may have experienced difficulties in early life.
