There are 2 billion children in the world. 1 billion experience the effects of trauma. One out of every two children! But there are also 5 billion adults in the world who can rally around them. Complex trauma impacts so much, that traditional methods of parenting, teaching and interacting often don’t work. However, there are specific interventions and approaches, known as trauma-informed care, that can change a child’s life. 

Join us for the seven consecutive Tuesday evenings, September 12, 2023 to October 24, 2023 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM to become a trauma-informed parent. Participants receive 3 hours for each training session attended. While participants are encouraged to attend all seven sessions of this series in order, it is not required.
