Building the foundations for a happy future.

Following on from the Family Session, we send out information about the nearest SafeBase programmes, so the family can choose which is the most convenient.

The 4-day programme is for parents and carers only. It runs from 10am-4pm each day over a two week period, e.g. week one: Wednesday and Thursday, week two: Wednesday and Thursday. Lunch and refreshments are provided each day.

Parents and carers are given a SafeBase Handbook at the start of the programme and a certificate of completion at the end.

The 4-day Therapeutic Parenting programme:

  • Explores the relationships within the adoptive family, the child’s family of origin and other significant attachment figures
  • Helps parents to consider their own past experiences and how these may impact on their parenting
  • Teaches parents to understand the reasons for their children’s challenging behaviours
  • Provides practical techniques and strategies to meet these challenges and improve the quality of family life
  • Offers families the opportunity to share and learn from others’ experience
