A Step Further: A Workshop for Parents whose children have Experienced Trauma- Kearney

Saturday, May 25, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Kearney Public Library 2020 1st Ave, Kearney, NE Loup and North Platte Rooms

This training is provided at no cost for Right Turn eligible families and $35 for one parent or professional and $55 for two parents.

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 childhood 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 affect 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 well-rounded support to truly improve the quality of life, not just provide crisis management for the situation.
