We would like to inform you of opportunities by adoption friendly organizations such as the upcoming free webinar with Kathy Hummel. The webinar is on the topic of trauma informed parenting as it relates to foster and adoptive children parenting.
Below is a description provided by www.childrensaid.org
Trauma Informed Care has become a household name in the helping profession but it is much more than just a theoretical framework for working with traumatized populations. This understanding sheds light into the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that oftentimes leaves parents feeling confused, frustrated, unappreciated, angry, and even helpless. This is especially prevalent in the foster and adoptive family population.
This webinar discusses the neurodynamics of trauma as it applies to trauma informed care and various parenting strategies based on this understanding.
1. Review Trauma Informed Care from individual to macro level perspectives
2. Discuss the role trauma plays in neurodevelopment and overall daily functioning.
3. Discuss practical parenting strategies for foster and adoptive parents based on this understanding.
The webinar is scheduled for:
Tuesday, December 16
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (CST)
(Optional Q&A: 1:00 – 1:15 pm)
