Legacy of Connection

Saturday, February 4, 2017.
Eventbrite - Copy of Legacy of Connection 2018
Children who come into families through adoption or foster care have all experienced relationship based trauma which can disrupt healthy development, adversely affect relationships, and contribute to mental health issues. Research and experience has shown adoptive and foster children only experience security and deep healing from relationship based trauma when they become a part of a loving, healthy family.

Forever Families will be hosting a workshop on Saturday, February 3, 2018, for adoptive families, foster families, adoption workers, and others who serve children who have experienced trauma. The goal of this workshop is to enable parents and caregivers to understand and recognize the effects of trauma, and to provide tools to parents and caregivers that help the children that we serve heal.
