Hope For Healing SEE NEW ADDRESS

We are moving to a larger location because of high demand!

Attachment, Developmental Trauma and Parenting Continuing Education Credits Available

Children who have experienced early trauma,neglect and loss of attachment figures may struggle with trusting new parents. This loss of trust may impair new attachments which are necessary for resolving the early trauma. This workshop will help parents and workers understand the effect of trauma on the brain and physiology of the child. We will explore parenting challenges and why they occur. Parents will attain a new lens through which to see their child, themselves and the relationships among family members. This workshop is presented by The Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of children (www.attach.org).
