Almost all children in foster care have experienced some sort of trauma. As parents, it can often be difficult to understand what they are going through or to know how to help. Luckily, there are numerous community resources you can utilize that could help navigate how to help your child who has experienced trauma.
Below are two FREE events focused on learning ways to help children overcome trauma and succeed. See details below.
This seminar presents, in detail, how trauma can affect the developing brain and explores tools for helping to build resilience in children so that they can develop into emotionally strong adults. Research will be shared showing how trauma can affect a child's developing brain and caregivers will be told tips that they can use to help build resilience in every child.
