Children and teens who have experienced early trauma such as pre-verbal attachment trauma and neglect can struggle against a variety of anxiety manifestations in childhood and adolescence. The softer emotions of worry and fear are often masked by agitation, anger, and rigid behavior.
Family therapy holds that parents are the experts on their children and that relational healing is the most enduring form of change. Therapists are only with children for a short time whereas parents, grandparents, and siblings enjoy a lifelong connection. Therefore the impact of relational interventions are both deep and enduring.
Parents, caregivers, teachers, and even therapists often struggle with negative emotions. Anxiety exhibits in a myriad of challenging and negative ways.
This event is open to all parents and caregivers, waiting and prospective parents, adult adoptees, professionals and students.
Seating is limited, registration and payment are required in advance.
Please arrive to check-in at 12:20. Meeting is from 12:30 to 2:00 pm.
