The Circle of Trauma; Understanding and tackling blocked trust and blocked care
Every feel like you are going to lose your mind? We all have.
In this workshop, we’ll tackle the challenge of caring for adoptive children and children in foster care with adverse childhood experiences and difficult past histories. This is designed for those parenting children who have relationship difficulties, especially children that have experienced attachment problems, trauma, loss and/or separations early in life. The hope is that this program will be helpful for parents who are having parenting challenges and enable them to in crease their emotional connection with their children. We will use the Adverse Childhood Experiences ( ACEs) questionnaire to discuss trauma, blocked care, blocked trust and how to build resiliency in bother yourself and the children you are about. This workshop is a precursor of the Reframing Parenting weekend workshop the Coalition will be presenting in the spring.
Presenter: Richard Heyl de Ortiz, Executive Director, Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York.
