Hi Abby! Glad to see you posting here -- you might also want to ask this question (again?) to the Facebook Group for PhotoTherapy... |
I did some consulting a few years ago, regarding a "young parents group" for an Agency who was trying to teach parenting skills so that these young parents could keep their children out of foster care.
I guided the workers in a series of exercises which were aimed toward increasing empathy, raising self-esteem/confidence, and also creating a process where they could learn to play with their children (most were survivors of a long history of being in care themselves and so did not learn parenting through the "natural" channels that most families provide).
If you want some consulting about this, feel free to phone or skype me -- I'll give you a half-hour or so for no charge...
