Level 2 - SAfE Parenting: A Therapeutic Approach.

What is the SAfE Parenting Approach?

SAfE Parenting is a Therapeutic Parenting Approach which stands for Secure Attachments founded on Empathy. It is a Therapeutic Parenting course devised by The Centre of Therapeutic Parenting Studies at Inspire Training Group, part of The Centre of Excellence in Child Trauma.

SAfE parenting is based on the PARENTS model of Therapeutic Parenting devised by Sarah Naish (2017) which supports parents in their ability to look at the root cause of their child’s behaviour and respond consciously rather than emotionally.


Who is SAfE Parenting for?


The SAfE parenting course is aimed at all parents, and can be effective in parenting children with varying needs. This includes children who have experienced pre-natal and post-natal factors which may have impacted on their development, and children who have experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences.
