Help for parents of traumatized children
Our Caregiver Education Program provides workshops for individuals raising a child who has experienced trauma, including:
- Biological parents
- Adoptive parents
- Foster parents
As parents or guardians of children who have been traumatized, you have some of the most challenging, important and emotionally draining roles.
In this supportive setting, you’ll learn valuable information on:
- How to improve communication with your child
- Techniques to help influence your child’s behavior
- Ways to reduce the stress of parenting a traumatized child
For more information about participating in this program, contact our Community Education Department at 517-548-1350.
“Understanding how trauma affects children can help you make sense of your child’s sometimes baffling behavior, feelings and attitudes. Once you understand why your child behaves the way he or she does, you’ll be better prepared to help him or her cope with the effects of trauma.”
