Barnardo's Link: Adoption and Family Support Service

Adoption Support Therapeutic services for prospective adopters, adoptive families, adopted children and young people, adopted adults, birth family members and, in recent years, families where children are placed under a Special Guardianship Order (SGO). The Attachment Focused Therapy (AFT) service is designed to encourage the attachment or bonding between the adoptive parent/s and the child/ren in order to build the beginnings of a trusting relationship which gives mutual attachment, predictability, esteem, and pleasure. This therapeutic parenting model is underpinned by Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, promoting the principles of PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, Empathy), as developed by Dan Hughes. AFT can be modified in its delivery to address particular challenges the family may be facing at the time, for example:My Life therapy is undertaken with the parents and child together exploring the relationship between the child’s past and present lives. Age-related tools such as Life Roads or a Memory Box can be used, and a pre-existing Life Story Book can be re-worked and updated. This helps the child to understand and express their feelings, to tell their story and to identify the connections between the past and the present. Stronger Families therapy is a preventive service offered to prospective adopters in the crucial time between linking, matching panel and placement, which helps them to plan and prepare for the particular therapeutic parenting style and skills best suited to the child they are intending to adopt. Early Placement therapy continues the work of Stronger Families during the important first few months after the placement has been made. On-going Support therapy can be offered after the completion of an AFT service, with monthly sessions over six months to support the family maintain progress and to address any difficulties or problems that may arise during this period.Reconnect therapy is undertaken with parents and their adolescent or adult child where perhaps a previously good and stable family relationship is at risk of breaking down, or has already broken down. The therapy aims to build bridges, to develop coping strategies, to improve communication within the family and enable the whole family to talk about what they would like for the future. All of the above services are eligible for funding through the Adoption Support Fund. General Population Work.
