Children are highly vulnerable in the aftermath of traumatic events...their sense of safety and self needs to be rebuilt in connection with others.
What can we do when we as professionals have suffered these same events? And, how do we move our clients through these experiences into the present moment, when there is still fear and uncertainty?
When children view us as present and authentic in a crisis, particularly when they’re dysregulated, we create an opening for healing. By creating rhythms and connection, we give children with difficult emotions permission to create new experiences that teach them how to respond rather than react, as they’ve done in the past.
This recording offers effective interventions for individuals, dyads, families, and groups.
Don’t miss it! You’ll emerge energized, prepared, and ready to face the future.
This online program is worth 1.5 hours CPD.
