Understanding Trauma: How Hard Experiences Can Affect Children and Why if Matters for You – LIVE WEBINAR
August 31, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 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.
