November Presentation: Effective Communication with Children from Traumatic Backgrounds

Join us as Jeremy P. Elledge, a Trauma Specialist, shares information on how to effectively communicate with children and young people who have experienced trauma. He will provide tools, techniques and insights that will assist resource parents with ways to effectively connect with the children in their homes, so that traumatized young people can get their needs met in an efficient and effective manner.
