Code: SGC/19/825 Parenting Teenagers who have multiple ACE’s ( Adverse Childhood Experiences)


This ‘Pilot’ support group has been set up specifically for carers of teenagers, who may be struggling, or would like to better cope with some of the behaviours that their young people are showing. It will be reviewed in December 2019, and based on how successful the programme has been, may continue in 2020.



The multiple ACE’s (adverse childhood experiences) that our young people may have experienced are likely to have had an impact on their emotional development. This in turn can show as range of behaviours relating to:

· Fear (fight or flight)

· Inability to re-attune to care-giver

· Blocked trust

· Impulsivity

· Lack of cause & effect thinking

· Needing to be ‘in control’

· Lack of empathy

· Lack of remorse

· Hypervigilance

· Sadness & grief

· Fear of being ‘invisible’

· Anger



But how can we respond to these behaviours in a therapeutic way? This group looks to take an issue, identified by yourselves each month, and look at why a young person may be showing that behaviour and how we can respond therapeutically to it.



The group will be facilitated by Thinking Aloud and will aim to meet once every month during term time. The programme will very much be determined by yourselves, as this series of support groups has been set up with you in mind to meet your current needs. 

It would be helpful if you could email catherine.charlton@southglos.gov.uk  any particular issues that you would perhaps like covered in advance, as a more detailed programme could be drawn up ahead of the sessions, if we know what the issues are.

The role and responsibilities of the SENCO
The role of other staff in the setting in supporting children with SEND
