Event description

Description

The human brain is an inherently relational organ. We are all always seeking connection and safety. When children develop in traumatic or overwhelming environments, their attempts at finding connection and safety are overwhelmed by terror, isolation, or helplessness. Rapid advances in the relational neurosciences are helping us understand how these overwhelming experiences impact a child’s whole self. 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 (and know what to do) behave well." After deeply studying the relational neurosciences, studying with experts in our field, and curiously watching the healing process unfold in my therapy office, I believe this down to my core. We'll walk through the definitions of regulation, connection, and felt safety and we'll learn concrete ways to increase each of them for children with histories of toxic stress or complex trauma. Attendees will leave understanding the importance of cultivating presence and regulation in themselves first in order to invite their children into connection and regulation.

Creating spaces for the adults who care for children impacted by complex trauma and behavior dysregulation (parents, teachers, teachers, therapists, case workers, baby-sitters, grandparents, CASA, EVERYONE!!!) to come together, experience connection, feel seen, known, and GOTTEN, and maybe even learn a few things about how to help their child experience a bit more regulation is basically my favorite thing ever. Well, except maybe that all inclusive resort I went to once in Mexico...that might have been my favorite thing ever....

ANYWAY. I love it so much I decided I was just going to host my own event. I LOVE bringing you all together. I love the friendships that bloom. I love watching strangers at a table just 'get' each other the second they sit down. I love the laughter. I love the realness. I love being an example of how to show up completely raw and completely real because we just ain't got time for anything else.

So! I do hope you'll come!!
