About the Training

Many children in adoptive and foster families come to us with challenging behaviors. Parents and caregivers need to have the knowledge, skills, and understanding of where these behaviors come from, and how to deal with them. Past trauma from in-utero and out of utero experiences, can have a signifigant impact on the child's brain wiring, making it hard for them to use impulse control and learn from consequences.   Join us as we discuss and explore ideas and strategies to use in response to challenging behaviors.
