Complex Trauma Parenting In Action: Tools for Healing in Daily Life

“Can Consequence Me All You Like But Stealing Just Makes Me Feel Better”
A trauma informed approach to help children act and relate differently when stressed in daily life. Learn what causes these reactions, how and why the brain is wired differently and how you can help your child. When working with your child with complex trauma, cognitive tools that try to shift how your child may think don’t go far enough to help a child meet emotional and relational needs. This workshop will address behaviors, relational engagement, creating safety, and self regulation with hands-on parenting techniques.
