Trauma Informed Care 2.0

October 6, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Back by popular demand, Trauma Informed Care 2.0, will cover how past traumatic events effect behavior, how to best care for kids from hard places, and things to keep in mind when building relationships with children and parents who may have experienced trauma.

As volunteers, parents, teachers, and advocates we want to make sure we’re providing the best care possible. But to do so, we need to keep a family’s potential traumatic history in mind. DC127 is delighted to bring in Bonnie Martin, LPC, an expert with a background in complex trauma.  Ms. Martin, currently a licensed professional counselor in a private practice, has worked over the last 15 years to develop culturally specific strength-based approaches for motivating behavioral change and building trauma resiliency by implementing the most recent neuroscientific research on trauma healing and attachment theory.

This is a great opportunity for anyone that interacts with families who may have a traumatic background. This is also a great next step for those who have been through the Safe Families Volunteer training and are looking for more indepth information. And the content will be different from last year’s trauma training so please join us again even if you came last fall!

All foster families and Safe Families volunteers can attend this training for free, however, we want to expand this throughout the city. So please share with your friends, family, and co-workers. A suggested donation of $10.00 will be collected at the door for individuals outside the DC127 network. This event will also provide 2 CEU’s for licensed foster families.

Please email Jessica at jessica@dc127.org with any questions.

Hope to see you there!
