Trauma Informed Parenting - When Point Plans Don't Work

The most well-intended therapists can miss the mark if they stick too closely to traditional behavioral management strategies with children who have trauma and/or adoption histories. This workshop provides some understanding of the way that children with trauma histories and/or attachment disruptions can have differing brain and body chemistry, as well as relational triggers- and as a result, often warrant thoughtful and specialized interventions. Children with sensory integration challenges will be specifically discussed as well. The aim is to rethink points charts and offer strategies that can truly be helpful to children and families to navigate daily family life. This webinar is applicable to adoptive parents and professionals.


Educational objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe ways that in utero and early childhood stressors change brain chemistry, and impact developmental milestones.
  2. Explain 3 ways that sensory integration issues impact behavior.
  3. Analyze, and discuss the concerns with the use of classic behavioral interventions with children with a trauma history.
  4. Identify specific trauma-informed and sensory stabilizing interventions that will address and improve a child’s behavior at home.
  5. List practical behavioral management tools that are effective in school settings for children with trauma histories and/or sensory integration needs.
