This group work program, written by clinical psychologist Kim Golding, is designed to provide support and guidance to adoptive parents and foster or kinship carers.

The program is structured into three modules, with six sessions per module.

Module 2 introduces the House Model of Parenting, providing guidance on how to help the children experience the family as a secure base.
Module 3 continues exploring the House Model with consideration of how parents can both build a relationship with the children and manage their behaviour.
