Please join adoptive mother and skilled trainer, Brenda Benning, as she offers new perspectives into your child’s behaviors, while offering real life techniques that can help regulate these same behaviors. This is a specialized training for families who are or may be parenting children with traumatic histories and/or attachment issues. This 16 hour series follows the model and book by Heather T. Forbes, “Beyond Consequences, Logic and Control.” Parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to safely share their own experiences and build a support system with other families who are living with the same unique experiences often found in adoptive, foster, and kinship families. Cost of the series includes the book, “Beyond Consequences, Logic & Control” by Heather T. Forbes (one book per couple). Books will be mailed prior to training.
Brenda Benning, MSW, LICSW received her Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Minnesota and has trained with Heather Forbes, the co-founder of the Beyond Consequences model. She is currently counseling families individually in home and group settings. Her primary focus is adoptive families with children HEALing from trauma and attachment issues. Brenda and her husband are currently parenting eight children, seven through adoption–multiple with diagnosed trauma and attachment disorders. Through these techniques Brenda has been able to restore the regulation in her own home.
