Location: Online via Zoom
Do we really realize the attachment trauma that family separation has on our kids of all ages? While we seem to be very concerned about what has recently been happening at the border regarding separating kids from their families who are trying to immigrate to the U.S., what about other reasons that we are separating kids and breaking up families? This training will look at the deep attachment ruptures that are occurring in our kids in foster care and other ruptures that are happening in their lives and which are contributing to the behaviors/symptoms for which they are being referred to us for services.
