TBRI® Caregiver Training 2019: Introduction & Overview-Lamar, CO
Parenting is challenging, particularly when you are parenting a child from a hard place. Children from hard places include children who were born prematurely, have been abused and neglected, have been adopted internationally, and have special needs. This training will focus on understanding the meaning of child behaviors, the brain chemistry of a child from a hard place, and how to help these children (and your family) heal and connect. Participants will learn tools they can put into action with their children immediately. Audience: Caregivers and professionals. This training is intended for caregivers who have achieved permanency for the children in their home and are no longer receiving services through child welfare. It is also intended for the professionals working with families caring for children with traumatic histories.
