SFCS gears up for annual adopter conference!

November 17, 2015


We’re very much looking forward to our annual adopter conference this coming Saturday (21st November), and are delighted to say that we are fully booked!

Entitled ‘Taming the Tiger – Emotional regulation for children with complex trauma’, the conference will take place at The Ridgeway Centre, Milton Keynes and will be attended by 180 delegates.  Full details of the schedule for the day can be found in our conference leaflet.

Dr. Renee P. MarksOur adopter conference will be led by Dr Renée P Marks. Dr Marks works as Consultant Therapist and Clinical Lead at Integrate Families in the North of England. Integrate Families is a National Centre for children with Complex Trauma and Dissociation.

Dr Marks is a national and international trainer on the topics of attachment, emotional regulation, complex trauma and dissociation in children and adolescents. Her training is based on a combination of research, theory and the practical application of these in the work and therapeutic approach with children and adolescents.

Through her vast experience in working with children and adolescents, Dr Marks provides practical ‘tools’ to adoptive parents, foster carers and teachers, and effective therapeutic techniques to therapists and counsellors in working with the more serious and complicated population of traumatised children and adolescents.

Whilst the focus will be on adopted children, this conference will be invaluable to adopters, foster carers, parents and professionals who work with children who present challenging behaviours.

We’re looking forward to what promises to be an informative and enlightening day for both adopters and professionals.

This conference is just one of the wide-ranging adoption support services we provide through Adoption Connections. The conference is presented by SFCS and sponsored by Milton Keynes Council.
