A structured support group training designed for parents raising children with adverse childhood experiences or difficult past histories. Reframing Parenting can be presented as an 18 hours six-week series or as a ten-hour, two-day weekday or weekend series.
The training explores:
- Building connections with your child before correcting their misbehaviors by using an attitude of play, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy
- Supporting your child through their sometimes difficult behavior to get them back on track to more socially acceptable behavior
- Blocked trust often evident in children who have experienced trauma or have experienced disruption
- Blocked care common among parents raising traumatized children, how our children can “plug in” to our own wounds, and the importance of self-care
- Deepening connections with them.
The concepts explored in Reframing Parenting apply to children of all ages.
