The Connected Child Workshop
January 17, 2017 –
All families at times face struggles and difficulties, but for families who adopt or foster children who have come from the "hard places", those struggles and difficulties are often greatly increased in intensity and complexity.
Join us for this two-part study as we explore and discuss the material in Dr. Purvis' book The Connected Child and discover how to apply the principles of Trust Based Relational Intervention at home with foster, adoptive, or kinship children. This study is designed to help you change the way you relate to your child and bring healing to his or her heart.
Areas covered are:
- Provide for your child holistically: body, soul and spirit
- Understand what causes difficult behavior and how to respond to it
- Replace your child's maladaptive survival skills
- Identify and disarm your child's fear responses
- Teach your child new life values
- Navigate your personal challenges as a parent
Our classes are open to foster and adoptive families or families raising others children and any family or person interested in learning more about these strategies.
This interactive small group study is designed to help you and your child build a lasting, loving connection. You will be encouraged and equipped with practical help based on interventions specifically developed for adoptive or foster care families. This is first of two part session.
