Caring for children with trauma can be challenging. Children who have experienced trauma such as abuse, neglect, domestic violence, community violence, and the like, can continue to experience the effects of this trauma long after they have been removed from the situation or the source. It can be difficult for caregivers to know how to best support and effectively parent children with trauma, while remaining sensitive to the child’s past experiences. Join us on March 8, from 6:30 pm – 8 pm where we will discuss opportunities for how caregivers can support children who have experienced trauma.
