This seminar is for anyone who lives or works with children. While we are focusing on how respond to children with trauma it is not reserved for parents who are fostering/adopting children with trauma. This will be a very helpful seminar for anyone with regular contact with children.
We hope all parents can join us for our Triumph Through Trauma seminar on Friday, September 30, hosted by Dr. Ryan Strother. Dr. Strother wrote his doctoral thesis on Equipping Parents to Understand and Respond to Children from Traumatic Backgrounds. As an adoptive parent, Dr. Strother has personal and professional experience in the area of trauma.
According to The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN), children experience trauma when an intense event threatens or causes harm to their emotional and physical well-being. NCTSN claims that roughly one of every four children will experience a traumatic event before the age of sixteen. You'll see the effects of trauma in their behavior.
This training will bring clarity to your questions about why they are acting certain ways, and it will try to break the stigma of thinking “what is wrong with them?” Something seems off, but you don't understand why. And if something is off, then what are children to put on?
Through this interactive training, you’ll be reminded that you are in a significant position to shape children’s hearts. You'll learn how trauma has influenced their hearts, and you'll leave with five practical strategies for disruptive behavior that you can implement in your home or classroom today. It won't just improve behavior and bring peace, but it will also help you shape children’s hearts for an eternal impact.
