Time & Location
About the Event
If you are raising another person’s child, do you find yourself challenged even though you chose and love the child? Can’t figure out why your child is calm and loving one moment and escalated all of a sudden? Reward and punishment parenting and logic parenting models not working for you? Then we challenge you to become a TRAUMA-INFORMED caregiver/parent!
This presentation will introduce some of the prominent researchers and practitioners who can help you understand how trauma affects children’s development, learning, and behavior. Your questions about those troubling behaviors will start being answered. You will learn positive, strength-based parenting skills that build trust and nurture security with your child. Take the challenge-just one hour to get started on your road to being a TRAUMA-INFORMED parent.
