 Trauma Lens Care | Training with Darren & Stacey

Virtual Training Opportunities the 3rd Thursday of the Month








Adult Attachment, ACEs and Parenting Skills
Thursday, February 17, 2022 | 10:00 am

How are our childhood experiences related to our parenting practices? How do we move beyond our subconscious paradigm of parenting to be better able to connect with our children? This class will offer some background information on the ACE study, an introduction to attachment theory, and how we apply this information as parents.
Scientific research shows that the degree of connection a child experiences in the first crucial years of life sets them up for success or challenges for the rest of their lives. We take this research and we begin to explore how our attachment and ACEs affect us as adults.
During this training, we will explore why attachment is so important and why failure to attach as a result of childhood adversity can become a barrier to lifelong health and well-being.

Register here for the February 17th class!

Technology and Teens

We live in a digital world and our children are inundated with technology. This class will tell you how to protect your children from the negative effects of cell phones and social media, and give you ideas for helping them use technology in positive ways.
