Kinship Live Virtual Webinar Training – Trauma Series Part II: Parenting With Purpose

November 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Trauma series part two

In part II of our Trauma series, we’ll learn practical techniques that will teach how to effectively parent children with trauma. We’ll look at positive discipline measures that focus on helping the children learn how to respond to situations while avoiding more common parenting pitfalls. We’ll also gain a new understanding of “triggers” that children have as a result of the trauma they experienced and how those triggers can influence behavior (which can trigger more negative reactions).
