How we support adoptive families and children

We appreciate that many of the challenges encountered by our families stem from their children’s early life experiences.  The children often have difficulties in trusting adults and forming healthy relationships within their new families. 

The FACTS therapeutic model is based on theory, research and practice models within the complex trauma/attachment perspective.  We integrate particular models within the complex trauma/attachment perspective particularly Theraplay® and Dan Hughes’ Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP). 

We take a holistic approach and work with parents, children and families individually and together, as well as providing specific training programmes for adoptive parents and potential adoptive parents.
