About this Course
Use this 6-module online course to help you build up an internal reparenting-based community.
This course helps plural & DID systems learn techniques to build towards a safer, more loving, more caring internal community that helps your inner children heal by providing for them according to their needs. Materials will help systems figure out what’s in your way, work on ways to reliably set up your internal world (whether or not you can visualize it) to support your inner kids, and resolve stumbling blocks to work through them.
This course is specifically for plural & DID systems dealing with intrusions from traumaholders, who have system kids who are looking for parental figures, and for folk who have gone through Search & Rescue &/or Inner Worldscaping and are looking for ways to help troubled younger passengers and work towards onboarding system residents regardless of age. It’s also appropriate for systems who do not have appropriate and safe external parental figures or role-models. You can take this course before Search & Rescue in preparation for rescuing young traumaholders, or even if you already have been working on a reparenting focused community.
This course is based on a “flipped classroom” model coaching course to learn and practice how to:
- Leverage your inner world (however it may be available) to create safe spaces that are engaging and help system kids feel safer
- Disengage from inappropriate external parental figures and redirect system kids towards internal carers
- Recognize ages and stages, discuss the many ways system kids may overlap with external agemates, or not
- Improve your& own parenting skills internally
- Explore decent external parenting role-models for your bigs and teens to learn from
- Learn to provide round-the-clock care for system kids and why this is important
- Understand a variety of parenting styles that y’all can choose from
- How to lead learning and behavior by setting a good example for your headmates
- Inspire more system kids to potentially age up
Suitable candidates for this course should:
- Be prepared to sincerely take care of your system’s children, including middles, teens and young adults
- Have at least one or more system carers prepared to help with parenting system children
- Commit to the full 6 modules, to help build skills in case of any newly discovered system kids in the future, even if you quickly establish a well-bonded relationship with your system kids early on in the course
