CURRENTLY OPEN FOR REGISTRATION!
We invite you to join Christian Family Care as we bring a powerful, two-day conference with a focus on trauma, through the eyes of a child …from despair to hope.
Friday, May 17, 2013, 9:00-3:00pm
Focused on Engaging Parents in the child’s therapy
Clinicians face the challenge of working with children with wounds and trauma occurring within the parent-child relationship. This presentation will discuss the latest research and literature on the link between attachment security and mentalizing capacities. In addition, this workshop presents an innovative multilevel-attachment-focused model that will allow clinicians to work alongside parents with insecure states of mind and their children. This includes: Psychoeducation, emotion regulation, trauma processing and parent child dyadic work.
Resource Parent Day
Saturday, May 18, 2013, 9:00-3:00pm
Equipping parents with practical tools to parent the child exposed to trauma
This workshop will provide information about the effects of trauma and early attachment experiences in how the self develops. Before children can see themselves through their own eyes, they see themselves through the eyes of their important caregivers. How caregivers see, feel and understand their children will directly influence how they respond to their needs and what children get to build the “self.”
Foster parents who attend will qualify for credit hours. Certificates will be available at the end of the 2nd day.
Location: First Baptist Church of Tempe (4525 South McClintock Drive, Tempe, AZ 85282)
Community Resource Families: (i.e. foster, adoptive and kinship) $25.00 per couple / $15.00 per person
Community Professionals: $60.00 per person a day / $75.00 both days
Day of event registration will be an additional $10.00.
Both days will include a question and answer period during lunch break. LUNCH IS NOT PROVIDED, however we will provide snacks and water.
CHILDCARE WILL NOT BE PROVIDED and children will not be admitted due to the sensitive topics discussed.
