Event description

Description

This free nine-hour training will cover the four areas of faith, attachment, love and support for foster and adoptive parents and offer key thoughts and insights into parenting children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Using a faith-based, Biblical perspective, the training will prompt parents to consider their own motivation and abilities to care for foster and adopted children in order to help them gain an understanding of the importance of their faith and their ability to provide unconditional love for a child in their care. Parents will receive information on attachment and relative research in brain development and traumatized children from sources such as Dr. Karyn Purvis, Director of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University, and Dr. Bruce Perry, child psychiatrist and Senior Fellow of The Child Trauma Academy, as well as seven key "insights" and seven key "gifts" to offer to children who are struggling to form healthy attachments and those who care for them. Additional resources for future study will be presented to parents.
