Event description



  • Conference is 4 hours
  • Date: July 11, 2017
  • Time: 8 am to 12 pm


In order for children to begin healing from past hurts and traumas, learn to regulate their emotions and learn to trust adults and peers, they need an environment that is stable and consistent. School personnel (counselors, psychologists, special education teachers, etc.) can aide in the healing process by providing an environment that gives the child healthy limits and control, caring structure, understanding and compassion.

In this training participants will learn how to facilitate an effective social skills group using strategies based on trauma, brain research, child development and attachment/bonding. The group process that will be taught is specially designed to meet the needs of children with significant social, emotional and behavioral difficulties so that there is an opportunity for healing to occur and for behavior to improve. The strategies that will be taught are also effective with your typical student.


  • Understand the theory and rational behind Healing Groups.

  • Participants will learn basic skills to run an effective social skills group.
