Understanding Trauma: How Hard Experiences Can Affect Children and Why if Matters for You – WEBINAR

July 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Children who are placed for adoption have lived through hard experiences, from separation from their birth parents to neglect, abuse, and other forms of trauma. As you prepare to adopt a child, it is important for you to know that trauma affects child development in ways that influence emotions, behavior, and relationships. This class will help you understand your child through a trauma lens, which can help you respond to their unique needs. It is presented by Corinne Fleming, Psy.D., a licensed clinical psychologist at Children’s Research Triangle, which is a nonprofit organization in Chicago that specializes in evaluation and treatment of vulnerable children and families, many of whom are affected by trauma.


REGISTRATION:  To register for this class, please email registration@adoptillinois.org.   Please include in the email (1) name of the class (2) full names of those planning to attend (3) email addresses and (4) phone numbers.
