New group for adopted youth

Adolescence is a tough time for many youths. The complexity of adoption-related issues can magnify this difficulty. That is why Right Turn now offers groups specifically for youth during these difficult years.

Our 6-week group for youth age 10-13 will launch on October 1st. Space is limited so be sure to register early.

A Step Further Parent Workshop (Session 1) - Lincoln

Saturday, May 5, 2018
9:00 am3:00 pm
Nebraska Children's Home Society | 4700 Valley Road | Lincoln, NE 68510

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 May 11, 2018, from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.

By registering for this session, you are registering for the second session as well.
