3.5 hours CPD


Adoption practitioners and managers (Voluntary Adoption Agencies, Regional Adoption Agencies and Local Authorities) and Independent Professionals.


This is a unique opportunity to learn how Coram enables adoptive parents to engage in beneficial life-story conversations. Senior adoption practitioners at Coram will present the ‘’LSW & LSB’’ Training they have been providing for Adoptive Parents over a number of years, where parents are encouraged to make their own LSBs for their children, and to engage in LSW with them on an ongoing basis. 

Adoptive Parents have reported that the Training has been very helpful and enabling in giving them the confidence and skills and they need to take on this important task. The focus throughout is on establishing a collaborative approach between parents and child, so that the child’s story becomes part of the adoptive family’s story and the child is not left carrying the burden of their history alone. Parents report that Communication has been enhanced, and their children are relieved to have their deep feelings and anxieties about their life-story understood and held in mind.

You will have the opportunity to identify the situations you find most challenging and work in smaller groups to consider various solutions. Also, you will be able to network with practitioners from other agencies, share best practice and glean new ideas.


A member of staff will be in touch with attendees one week prior to the event to share a pre-event delegate pack.
