Upcoming Conferences, Retreats and Trainings on Attachment and Trauma

October 27, 2014

One of the things that I have learned as a mom to traumatized kids is that I am a much stronger, healthier and happier mom when I take time to refresh my arsenal of parenting techniques.  My husband and I will have been parents to three adopted girls for 12 years on Friday (wow), but this fall we are taking a nine week parenting class.  And every week — even when we as a class read books I have already read — I learn something I can apply at home to make our lives better and help my children heal.  With that concept in mind, we will publish here on the blog every three weeks some upcoming opportunities to learn more about trauma and attachment and parenting.

Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Conference, Irving, Texas, October 24-25, 2014

Beyond Consequences Live with Heather Forbes, Fullerton, California, Saturday, November 1, 2014

Adoption Knowledge Affiliates Adoption Conference, Austin, Texas, November 7-8, 2014

24th Annual Conference on Promoting Healthy Attachments, November 24-25, 2o14, Wheeling, West Virginia

And if you can’t travel, you can still learn at home.  For the next five weeks, The National Institute for the Clinical 
Application of Behavioral Medicine is offering a FREE webinar Wednesday nights.  It plays both at 5:00  p.m. and at 6:30 p.m., and features some terrific speakers.  This week Sebern Fisher talked about neurofeedback, an exciting treatment that is making an enormous difference for many children!

Finally, another core component of being a therapeutic parent to a traumatized child is making sure that you are taking care of yourself.  There are many ways you can do this, but one way is to attend a mom’s retreat.  This one is amazing:

Beyond Trauma and Attachment, Orlando, Florida, February 20-23, 2015.
