Parents Have Stories Too: Trauma Informed Approaches to Working with Challenging Parents and Caregivers
Friday, July 22 | 9AM-12:15PM (3 CEUs*) -
Registration opens next week!

Course fee: $49, Members | $69, Non-members (includes 60 days on-demand access)

Effectively serving children requires practitioners to build positive relationships with parents and caregivers. Frequently caregivers present behaviors that are experienced by workers as adversarial, resistant, demanding, or passive; making it difficult for practitioners to develop an effective working alliance. This training will present information about the complex interplay of parental histories of early childhood adversity, systems involvement, and/or school challenges that impact their ability to engage in services or collaborate with schools. Participants will learn how to apply a trauma lens to parent interactions along with strategies for increasing positive parent engagement. Workshop objectives include the following:

  • Identify factors that impact parent/caregiver responses when interacting with child-serving professionals
  • Understand how parent/caregiver history of trauma influences their engagement behaviors
  • Learn strategies to effectively engage parents/caregivers in services
