Cultivating Resilience: Prioritizing Self-Care to Cope with Family Adversity

November 14, 2019

Webinar

Event Trainers
Shannon Stark Guss

Resource parenting is a complex process that takes many cognitive, emotional, and behavioral regulation resources. These resources can be diminished by stress, trauma, and adversity – both from a resource parent’s current life and from a resource parent’s own childhood. This workshop will explore some of the ways that parents’ pasts (both bio parents and resource parents) can impact our everyday interactions with the children in our care. The workshop will also explore the importance of self-care and other research-informed strategies to build and maintain our resources and systems of resilience.

Parents in attendance will earn 1 hour of in-service training credit toward their annual 12-hour requirement.
