Description

Topic: Discipline for Children from Trauma: Responding to Challenging Behaviors

Description: There are a wide array of parenting tactics that seem to work for a child with typical, healthy beginnings but for an at-risk child who has experienced compromised beginnings the bar is raised for parents. This presentation includes practical ideas for disciplining children while still maintaining feelings of safety and security and focusing on attachment.
