Support the healing of kids in the child welfare system

From CFSA:
Find out how to help the kids who are hurting the most!

Most children, teens, and families who come in to the child welfare system have had many traumatic experiences. Helping children heal is our greatest challenge.

To help children understand their behaviors and emotions and make healing changes, resource parents, social workers, GALs, teacher, judges, and everyone working with the children needs to understand trauma: what it is, how it effects child behavior, and how best to respond and support healing.

You are invited to attend a two-hour, no-cost, online training session given by national trauma experts Dr. Adam Brown and Kelly McCauley. They will provide you with key components of Trauma Systems Therapy (TST), information about the impact of trauma on families, and how the District is working to become a trauma-informed child welfare system.

To sign up for the session convenient for you, log onto WebEx using the links below. You will need a computer, an internet connection, and access to a phone to participate.
