A New Way of Being
What if there was a way for you to simply "be" around children -- a better way? A more effective way to handle difficult behaviors and emotions? Would you embrace ideas that could bring your family closer together and make the time you spend with your child happier and more fulfilling?
Imagine relationships where children felt accepted and parents, teachers, or caregivers felt empowered. Well, there is a way and it's based on decades of research into childhood brain development, the expertise of countless professionals, and a wealth of information on building resilience. In fact, our work is based on this way of being and is the cornerstone philosophy of our approach.
Now, we're sharing it with you. Our updated manual and online training entitled "A Way of Being with Children: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Building Resilience" is essential information for parents, teachers, childcare workers, or anyone who lives or regularly interacts with children and families.
What is a Trauma-Informed Approach?
Our goal is to build a more trauma-informed community so that children can grow up with adults who understand the impact of trauma and adversity and do not risk re-traumatizing children through their words or actions. Being trauma-informed involves understanding, sensitivity, and a deep knowledge of how trauma can affect a child's growing brain and potentially result in lifelong physical and mental health implications.
