In this 30 minute webinar, I introduce C.A.R.E.S, my new trauma-responsive model for building trust with children after trauma. I had the incredible opportunity to present with the dedicated team of advocates at The United Ways of California, and KinshipCareCA.org.
The C.A.R.E.S model provides a step-by-step approach for gaining consent before attempting to co-regulate with an emotionally unregulated child.
In addition to C.A.R.E.S, I also share practical skills like "trigger mapping" and "mindset mountain" to help parents and professionals build trust and attachment with trauma-impacted youth. If you are struggling to help a child who is explosive, withdrawn, aggressive, anxious, angry, and depressed, there is hope! With the right tools and understanding of how trauma impacts a child's developing brain, YOU can be the corrective emotional experience children need to succeed in life.
There is no quick-fix for abuse, neglect, and grief, but together we can build a path in the darkness towards a brighter future for children who are in immense pain. I firmly believe we are not our labels, diagnoses, or disorders. We are human. Our reactions and responses are human, and all healing starts with trust and connection. Children need to feel to heal.
To learn more skills for improving children's emotional health, please join my Facebook group, Emotiminds. It is a virtual classroom of like-minded parents and professionals sharing their skills to help children develop resiliency and well-being. We would love to have your perspective!
