Dear Dan Webinar – a consultation with Dan Hughes for professionals

26 May 2020, 2-5pm live online (with a half-hour break from 3.15-3.45pm)

How to support adoptive, SGO and foster families during Covid-19

Family Futures is inviting professionals working with adoptive, SGO and foster families to sign up to a live online webinar on 26 May with Dr Dan Hughes, founder of DDP. Dan will be offering professionals a consultation on working with traumatised children and their families during the current challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, including ideas to inspire parents/carers and to help children experience safety in spite of these anxious times.

Participants are invited to send in a topic request (please enter this in the ‘notes’ section of the webinar booking form by the 18th of May). The topics will inform the focus of Dan’s presentation. Participants will also receive the recorded version of the webinar which will be available for one month afterwards.

Dan Hughes’ therapeutic model of DDP involves assisting children (and their parents) understand their troubled past while also enhancing their ability to form trusting relationships with their adoptive parents or carers. Parenting skills including PACE (playful, accepting, curious and empathic) will be explored for assisting both children and their parents to experience greater safety during this time of heightened stress when the pressures on the whole family are greater than ever by living in lockdown.

The cost of the live webinar is £30. All profits will go to the Family Futures Crisis Fund to support families of traumatised children in crisis.
