Butterflies and Bees is changing its name to Therapeutic Parenting Pick 'n' Mix
As many of you will be aware, Butterflies and Bees has been running for a number of years now. It has seen many changes during this time, not least due to the varying knowledge and experience that our Thinking Aloud Team bring to the courses, but also as further research into trauma continues to develop our understanding of how to support and respond to children and young people therapeutically. As a result Kirsty Fraser, feels that the course has changed quite dramatically from what it originally was and feels that now is the time to update and rename the intervention so that it better describes the outcomes that Thinking Aloud are hoping to provide. As a result they will be using the time between now and September to develop their new intervention. They are hoping to offer some focus groups/workshops for carers and young people over the Summer to help develop the course. This will be called Therapeutic Parenting Pick 'n' Mix, based on the recognition that both young people and carers have individual needs and responses to strategies and techniques. As I receive more details about this course so these shall be shared with you. For the moment, carers who had registered their interest on the April Butterflies and Bees course have been ransferred across to this course that will begin in September.
