Description

THURSDAY, March 14th - Robyn Gobbel, LCSW, RPT-S

Topic: Healing Trauma from the Heart Part 1
In this day-long workshop, we will first dive into a basic understanding of brain development, laying the foundation for the paradigm shifting belief that "Regulated, connected children who feel safe behave well." After deeply studying the relational neurosciences with experts in our field, and curiously watching the healing process unfold in my therapy office, Ms. Gobbel believes this down to her core. We'll walk through the definitions of regulation, connection, and felt safety and learn concrete ways to increase each of them for children with histories of toxic stress or complex trauma.

Topic: Healing Trauma from the Heart Part 2
Ms. Gobbel will continue her presentation on understanding the importance of cultivating presence and regulation in the individual self first, in order to invite their children into connection and regulation.

FRIDAY, March 15th

Panel Discussion hosted by Dana Brown, LCSW
Topic: The Impact of Adoption: Triad Member Panel
Each triad member will share their personal experiences exploring the complex dynamics of adoption, search and reunion. They will share thoughts and feelings about best practice methods adoption professionals should consider when facilitating adoptions.

Genetic Sexual Attraction hosted by Denise Carroll, BSEd & Leslie Mackinnon, LCSW
Topic: Creating a Safe Space for Persons Experiencing Genetic Sexual Attraction
We will explore what can be a controversial and uncomfortable subject matter to broach. Being person in reunion may feel some sort of attraction. This is an opportunity to gain knowledge and support without shame or blame.
