Parent and Child Theraplay Pop-Up @ St Andrew's Children's Society

We are delighted to be holding a Parent and Child Theraplay© Pop-Up Session on Tuesday, 25 February from 11am to 12 noon.

Theraplay© uses engaging, interactive, playful and fun activities to promote attachment. These activities help to build positive parent-child relationships and to meet the needs of children who have experienced loss, disruption, difficult early experiences and gaps in their early development. This will also be an opportunity to meet with other adopters with children of a similar age.

The group is aimed at families who have had a child placed in the last year. Most of the activities are done in pairs so we would ask that one adult attend per child.

We hope you can join us.

Please call 0131 454 3370 and ask to speak to our Duty Worker to reserve a space or email info@standrews-children.org.uk.
