#20210315- WEBINAR: Part 1 (of 2) I’m Caring for a Child with Attachment and Trauma Issues: Now What?
(March 2021) Have you ever sat through a trauma/attachment training and left with more questions than answers? This two-part workshop will be a deep dive into applying the concepts of trauma or attachment problems. We’ll use our knowledge on trauma and attachment to create real life parenting solutions. The first evening will focus on difficult behaviors and ways to intervene – we’ll use your previous or current experiences to find practical solutions. The second training night will focus on how attachment is like a dance. Regardless of the attachment issues in your child’s past this dance can always be altered. It will require openness and self-reflection. Discussion will be focused on the importance of delving into your heart as a parent and how you can bring your best ~ even in the face of great challenge. This training will purposely bring a lighthearted and open approach as it is crucial that we be able to laugh at ourselves while working with kids who have suffered.
