NACAC: Trauma-Responsive Parenting Strategies for Parents & Professionals Conference

Wednesday, November 9, 2022
10:30 am4:30 pm

Join North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC) Wednesday, November 9, 2022 from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm CST, for a one-day, virtual conference for parents, professionals, and those considering foster care, kinship care, or adoption. If you can’t attend live, you can access recordings through December 31.

As we learn about the impact of trauma and loss on a child’s brain, we need to understand why traditional parenting strategies are often ineffective and can even diminish the child’s sense of felt safety and attachment with their parents. Connecting, relational strategies are more effective with children who have experienced trauma and loss, but just teaching parents the theory behind the strategies is not enough. Join us as we share concrete skills and approaches for effectively using relationship-building to promote attachment and healing, and reduce challenging behaviors. This workshop is a must for adoptive, foster, and kinship parents and the professionals who prepare and support them.

Sessions include:

The Impact Trauma Has on the Brain
Setting the Stage for Relational Parenting
Building Attachment
Trauma-Responsive Strategies
