Trauma-Informed Training

The Family Center staff is passionate about helping our community understand the vast and devastating effects of childhood trauma, including abuse and neglect, so they can empower parents to create safe, stable and nurturing relationships.

  • Recognizing, reporting, and responding to child abuse and neglect

  • The role of life experiences in shaping brain development
  • How to effectively engage parents with a history of trauma
