About this deal
As a trailblazer in the field of therapeutic parenting, COECT founder Sarah Naish has made a profound difference to the lives of many struggling foster and adoptive parents. The goal is that the ‘child can form attachments to others and build trust in adults,’ says Jefferies.

I avoided over-analysing different diagnoses and attachment styles but took on board useful information about them, such as the similarities and helpful strategies linked to dyspraxia with regard to my children’s clumsiness and disorganisation. If you are looking after children who have suffered trauma through early life neglect or abuse, the National Association of Therapeutic Parents (NATP), of which Sarah Naish is founder and CEO, can support you.Seeing things from the child’s perspective is so critical – seeking to understand their perspective is such an important first step for the teachers and the staff.
The A-Z of Therapeutic Parenting: Strategies and Solutions
Therapeutic parenting is often regarded as being exclusively for traumatised children who have nearly always been in care, fostered or adopted. Developmental trauma impacts on an individual’s understanding of relationships and can cause fear and anxiety even when they are no longer in the care of a negative caregiver. The reality was that she was also avoidant, not wanting to ask for or accept help, as well as ambivalent, in that she did not expect me to meet her needs.These children can then present with behaviours, including violence, that are very difficult for adults and parents to understand and deal with. She has been the keynote speaker at conferences around the world and is the UK’s best-selling author on therapeutic parenting. You can hear more about it from volunteer Lindsay Bodman and Emma Edwards, Director of the Haven Parenting and Wellbeing Centre on this episode.
