Therapeutic Parenting

We will spend this session exploring the concept of PACE (‘Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy’). PACE is a way of being with and caring for children who have experienced difficulties in their attachment relationships, which aims to help them form more secure attachment relationships with their caregivers. The course will explore how PACE can be used in your caring, including opportunities to try skills out and to consider some of the barriers and opportunities that come with this way of being.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about the theory behind PACE caregiving
  • Explore what each of the PACE concepts looks like in practice, and try them out
  • Reflect on our own experiences of using PACE and troubleshoot any challenges
