A Step Further Parent Workshop (Session 1) - Kearney

Friday, January 12, 2018
9:30 am3:30 pm
Kearney Public Library | Niobrara Room | 2020 1st Ave. | Kearney, NE 68847

With Christine Bowlby, LMHP, RPT

This two part workshop takes what we know about attachment, brain development, trauma, loss, and healing and puts it into practice. Parents become part of the healing process and begin to understand their child's behavior, mental health needs, and challenges differently. A Step Further curriculum is firmly rooted in research related to the impact trauma and loss has on the brain and how implementing therapeutic, enrichment, and educational activities can impact brain development and help to heal the parts of the brain which have been poorly developed or damaged because of child trauma. Right Turn recognizes the enormity of the situations for families parenting children with extensive trauma histories. Right Turn is committed to providing a well rounded support to truly improve the quality of life, not just provide crisis management for the situation.

The workshop focuses on:

•Assisting parents in understanding attachment milestones.

•Supports parents in implementing simple relationship building strategies.

•Improves a child’s ability to form trusting relationships.

•Improves parents ability to connect with their child and helps parents understand how past traumas effect a child’s relationship ability.

12 CEUs Available

Lunch is also provided.

The second session of this two part workshop is scheduled for January 20 2018, from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm.
