Inspire Training Group are the leading experts in Therapeutic Parenting and Trauma.
Inspire Training Group was established in 2007 and draws on the experience of a number of professionals including Attachment specialists within the therapeutic community, adopters and foster carers. The real life experience of those working on the project is highly valued by the families who receive our help.
We often hear that the only way to truly understand the reality of how it feels to live with a person with Developmental Trauma is to have that experience oneself. As a result of this we have found that parents are open to our ideas and input as we have used the methods ourselves, lived through it, and gained results.
