PACE in Practice

November 24, 2020 - November 24, 2020

Back to events


PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy) forms one of the foundational platforms for all therapeutic work with traumatised children as it aims to help children and young people feel understood, connected and safe.


The PACE approach imbues day to day interactions with intentional relationship-based interventions that over time reduce shame and negativity while building understanding, trust and joy.


This webinar is based on the work of Dan Hughes, who developed the PACE approach as part of Attachment-Focussed Family Therapy (AFFT).


This webinar is targeted at those people who work directly with parents, carers and young people.


Key Learnings:


  • Understand why traditional behavioural management approaches can end up in power struggles and repeated relational ruptures
  • Understand the benefits of the PACE approach to the child and the carer
  • Build knowledge about the four elements of PACE
  • Extend knowledge about how to respond with a PACE approach
  • Extend knowledge about how to support carers to use PACE in their day to day interactions.


Please note: Due to Covid 19 restrictions this webinar has been adapted from our full day, face to face workshop. Small group activities providing opportunities for participants to build skills through practicing using and teaching about PACE are most effective in a face to face setting. Participants should be aware that opportunities to practice the techniques in this forum are limited.


Date & Time:
Tuesday 24 November, 9.30am – 12.30pm (AEDT)

Cost: $175.00 (incl. GST)
