I would strongly recommend this seminar to any adoptive parents, Dan Hughes is an excellent speaker and a world renowned expert on attachment therapy for adopted children.

The seminar is being run by OASIS, the overseas adoption support and information service , who are a parent run organisation. However , it will be just as relevant to those who have adopted domestically .

From the OAsis website :

" We have been fortunate to be able to book a date for Dr Dan Hughes Phd. to talk to our members again.

“Attachment Focused Treatment for Children and Families”

For those who have not been able to hear Dan before, this is an opportunity not to be missed!

The Date: Sunday 18th May 2014

The Venue: The Kia Oval Cricket Ground (Pakistan Room), Kennington, London SE11 5SS
Cost - £45 members , £60 non members

I'm sure you won't regret it, he's a fascinating speaker. I'm very sad I can't go this time, but I've heard him before

I'm going to try to get there, though Sundays not ideal for me

KristinaM Mon 28-Apr-14 17:38:46

Stuff ideal, you really must go Kew.

I'm most annoyed that I can't

Devora Mon 28-Apr-14 18:07:53

I'm going to try to come.

Might there be lunch meetup opportunities...

Devora Wed 30-Apr-14 22:28:26

Lunch? I expect us to sit in the back row like the 3 harpies, rolling eyes and muttering to each other as appropriate.

namechangesforthehardstuff Wed 30-Apr-14 22:38:50

Oh OK. I actually give good harpy...

Will it sell out? Might need to get my shit together if so...

Devora Wed 30-Apr-14 22:42:17

I've just seen the price and am quailing a bit. Kristina, is it really really worthwhile? Including for domestic adopters?

KristinaM Thu 01-May-14 13:49:37

Don't be pathetic Devora. I SO know that you can afford £60. You would spend that on a night out. There are plenty adopters on this thread who couldn't spare £60 but you are NOt one of them. Don't get me started.

Dan doesn't just work with international adopted kids. If you think there is any chance that DD might ever need some therapeutic work around attachemt issues, you will find it useful .

Blimey, missus, you're so STRICT.

I rather like it.
