Registration Now Open for NCFA’s Next Free Training Opportunity

Join us for a continued look at trauma-informed parenting, through the lens of complex trauma. This workshop-style NCFA webinar will look at the characteristics of Complex PTSD, behaviors and conditions that can develop after exposure to traumatic stress, and the ways this may present itself within an adoptive parent-child relationship.

NCFA provides strategies for parenting through challenges related to maintaining trust, repairing self-worth, and regulating complex emotions. This presentation will explore ways to understand and meet the needs of children as they move toward adolescence, a phase where the brain’s developmental progression may present additional challenges for those who have experienced significant interpersonal trauma.

Presenter: Susan K. Taylor, Piedmont Coordinator, Consortium for Resource, Adoptive, and Foster Family Training (CRAFFT), at Radford University
