Parenting From Back to Front (London)

To parent and care for developmentally traumatised children effectively, parents and carers need to have an understanding of how poor parenting, abuse and neglect in infancy effect a child’s development. Developmentally traumatised children’s behaviour is often developmentally stuck at the primitive brain level of functioning, which inhibits the development of mid-brain emotional attachments and frontal lobe reflection and meaning-making. This is why we say developmentally traumatised children need parenting from back to front. This parenting programme has been devised for parents and carers based on Family Futures’ Neuro-physiological Psychotherapy treatment programme. It is used as a complimentary strand to intensive treatment at Family Futures, but it also can be used as a stand-alone parent education programme.
