Teen Support Group is an open forum, for Adopted Teens, to share and connect with other Adopted Teens.  Each teen participant and a guardian will need to complete a 1 hour orientation assessment before the teen can attend their first  meeting. If you have any questions, or would like to schedule an orientation assessment, please contact Jacey Stephens

TAC is coming to Norfolk!

TAC (Training for Adoption Compatency) will begin in Norfolk in September 2018.

A Step Further Parent Workshop - Lincoln

Saturday, July 21, 2018
9:00 am3:30 pm
Nebraska Children's Home Society | 4700 Valley Rd. | Lincoln, NE

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.

The workshop focuses on:
•Assisting parents in understanding attachment milestones.
•Supports parents in implementing simple relationship building strategies.
•Gives parents tools to improve a child’s ability to form trusting relationships.
•Improves parents ability to connect with their child
•Helps parents understand how past traumas effect a child’s relationship ability.

Right Turn recognizes the enormity of the situations for families parenting children with extensive trauma histories. We are committed to providing a well rounded support to truly improve the quality of life, not just provide crisis management for the situation.

6 CEUs Available

Lunch is also provided.
