Why this course?
Today’s educators have more responsibilities than ever before. Teachers are increasingly accountable for student performance while trying to manage difficult behavior in the classroom. Many good educators are leaving the profession due to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness.
This two-day seminar is based on 33 years of combined experience working with children with challenging behaviors and finding success using research based strategies. This seminar provides educators with a better understanding of children who have suffered from disruptive attachment and trauma which are often the root cause of inappropriate and/or out of control behavior in the classroom. In a fun and interactive way participants will learn that an emotionally healing environment is establishing healthy boundaries as well as building healthy relationships with their students. As the educator develops the skills and confidence in working with challenging students they will feel more joy and success in their job. This leads to a deeper connection between the educator and the student thus enhancing emotional and academic growth. Although the seminar is geared towards educators, mental health professionals and parents will also benefit.

Healing Children, LLC
Healing Children, LLC provides consultation and in-service training to adults (parents, educators, mental health providers, etc.) on how to effectively work with and build healing relationships with children who have severe emotional and behavioral challenges. We believe that through these relationships life-long healing can occur. Our mission is for all children to be emotionally healthy and happy. We believe as adults establish healthy relationships and appropriate boundaries children are more likely to grow and prosper. When adults understand the impact of trauma and development they are better able to create healing environments for children.
