Trauma-Informed Parenting (TIP) Workshop 2024 – June

June 14 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Unity Point is hosting a Trauma Informed Parenting Workshop on June 14th that we wanted to pass along. The workshop is free and sounds like a good learning opportunity as well as a chance to connect with other parents who are caring for children who have experienced trauma.

 

Overview and Purpose

The Trauma-Informed Parenting Workshop is a transformative program designed to empower parents and caregivers with a profound understanding of how trauma can significantly influence a child’s worldview, attachment to others, and subsequent behavioral manifestations. This workshop is a resource for those seeking to build strong, healthy relationships with children who have experienced trauma, promoting healing and resilience for both parent and child.

Intended Audience

This workshop is intended for any parent, caregiver or human services professionals who interact with children with adverse childhood experiences.
