Facilitator: Pam Lehtonen
2 Tuesdays: March 12th & March 19th 5:30-8:00pm (two-part class)
Because of their histories, children from hard places have changes in their bodies, brains, behaviors, and belief systems. While a variety of parenting strategies may be successful in typical circumstances, children from hard places need caregiving that meets their unique needs and addresses the whole child. Both evenings are video based training with room for discussion at the end of each class. Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a research grounded intervention that meets the complex needs of children who have suffered harm during early childhood. This 2 part class will explore attachment and why it matters. In the video experts will share encouraging research, particularly in the field of neuroscience, that reveals how secure can help counter the effects of early trauma. Pam has implemented these strategies in her home and will also offer tips and suggestions from her own experience. Participants will receive credit for 5 hours upon completion the training. Meets Foster VC Kids criteria for “Trauma.”
