Supporting Parents to use PACE in relating to their child
If you are working to support parents in your school or setting, this webinar is a must. It will give you a wealth of ways to be, and what to say that you can pass on to parents, all demonstrating a beautiful way of being together. PACE (play acceptance, curiosity and empathy) as a parent’s main mode of relating, engenders secure attachment in the child and a family atmosphere that is calm and deeply enjoyable as opposed to blighted with stress, arguments, people being in separate rooms/on their devices and/or cold withdrawal.
In the webinar, Dan addresses how to stay engaged with a child or teenager even in very stressful of situations. Through role play and case material, he beautifully models a PACE response in the face of the most challenging of behaviours, when a parent’s first instinct is often to move into anger and control. PACE brings connection and closeness, whereas ‘power over’ is guaranteed to sever connection and to engender flight, flight, or freeze behaviour in the child.
The following are also addressed in the webinar:
How to support parents to:
- Stay empathic and regulated with a distressed child, rather than move into reassurances.
- Put down boundaries in a paceful way
- Regulate yourself in the face of a child or young person’s shocking and/or frightening behaviour
- Regain PACE when their fear is blocking their curiosity so the pull is to resort to power and control
- webGive consequences in a paceful way
- Give structure and supervision with traumatised children
