PACE Small Groups, Chosen - Adoption | Foster & Orphan Care Outreach | Mentoring

PACE Small Groups

Caregivers looking to improve connection with their children from hard places will benefit from Chosen’s four-week long PACE classes. Rooted in attachment and intersubjectivity theory, PACE is a component of attachment-focused family therapy, also referred to as Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. Research shows that both healthy attachment and intersubjectivity are crucial for healthy development. All children who have experienced abuse and neglect are at risk for complex developmental trauma. PACE can be an important tool in reversing those effects.

 

Using the four tenets of PACE (playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy), this Small Group class will teach parents how to communicate with their children in such a way that felt safety is achieved when expressing thoughts and feelings. As parents use this method of communication, attachments will strengthen and children from trauma will begin to heal.

 

The class costs $195 and includes:

  • Four one-hour long sessions from your home computer with a practitioner trained in PACE
  • Practice with real-time feedback as to how to implement PACE in your home
  • Support from the other parents in the class via a private social media group
  • Certificates of Completion

*Scholarships are available
