Strong Enough to Bend: Traditional parenting techniques will most likely not work with your foster or adopted children. If you are considering inviting a child with a tough past into your home, or if you are already in the middle of it, this workshop will provide education on the effects of in utero and early childhood trauma, as well as practical trauma informed parenting strategies you can use in your home & community. (1 or 3 hours)
Trauma Informed Teaching Strategies: Each year there are hundreds of thousands of children experiencing trauma and ending up in the foster care system. Each school year children & teens are walking into classrooms having witnessed community / domestic violence and are trying (often unsuccessfully) to push down the pain and learn. Each year there are students sitting in desks that have experienced in utero and early childhood trauma that they may not remember, but it is evident in the way they are struggling to manage their behaviors. In this workshop you will learn how childhood trauma impacts learning & behavior management, followed by some practical ideas that will make classroom management easier and set up your students for success. (1 or 3 hours)
What can I do to help?: This is a topic specifically designed for family, friends and the community that supports foster & adoptive families. It details some of the effects of early childhood trauma, and then gently explains how & why we parent these children differently. Finally offering practical tips for our loved ones to support us in this special needs family journey. (1 hour)
