Adopter Resilience - Stress Vulnerability Model

Last week I was asked to speak to a group of adoptive parents and foster carers in relation to child on parent violence and aggression as well as adopter resilience.

Here's a little video of one bit of the presentation. Many adopters struggle with the long term challenges that they face parenting vulnerable children and developing resilience is an essential skill to keep yourself safe and sane. This video considers the Stress Vulnerability model and how we can manage the stresses and strains.
