When a child enters a foster or adoptive home following a history of abuse, neglect and trauma, often times, the foster or adoptive parents are broadsided by shattered expectations – the experience is nothing like they expected. They are confronted by the child’s confusing emotions and behavior, and they feel unequipped for the parenting journey. Participants will learn what is needed to provide “trauma- informed care” to children who have come from hard places.
