FACC Virtual Training: Trauma Training- Caring for Children Who Have Experienced Trauma
January 6 @ 9:00 am - January 27 @ 12:00 pmFree
This is a virtual training offered by the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. It is a 14 hour training divided among 4 Saturday mornings 9AM-12PM. Training dates are: 1/6/24, 1/13/24, 1/20/24 & 1/27/24.
Parenting children who have experienced trauma is different than parenting typically developing children. Children who
have experienced the trauma of abuse, neglect, and the loss of their family of origin bring unique challenges to the
parenting experience. This training is designed for resource parents to learn more about the issues unique to parenting
children who have lived through traumatic experiences.
The training is co-facilitated by an experienced foster/adoptive parent and a social worker, both with skills, knowledge and
insight directly related navigating traumatic stress reactions and other responses to trauma. This curriculum is designed to
empower families to examine their strengths, capacity for growth, and need for self-care, while presenting issues such as
behaviors that may be baffling, understanding the impact of trauma on the brain and development, building a safe space
for healing, and advocacy. Families will engage in discussion, groups, and individual activities specific to a child they know.
Participants will receive a training guide and resources beyond the training class.
