Why Do Children Act Like This?
Learn to improve the well-being and lives of children and families.
This intensive online, attachment training series for parents provides evidence-based insight for those struggling with problem behaviors. With humor, grace, and researched neuroscience, instructor, ATTACh Executive Director Mary M. McGowan, will help bring hope for healing to the children and youth in your care. You’ll learn about adult and child attachment styles, arousal levels linked to survival mechanisms in the brain, behaviors associated with attachment difficulties and developmental trauma, and strategies for attachment-focused parenting and teaching.
This training is open to ALL parents/caregivers, but if you are a MINNESOTA PARENT/CAREGIVER, this training series is available at no cost through a grant awarded by the Medica Foundation. It will offer additional supportive services to parents and caregivers who have a child or teen receiving treatment/care from a Minnesota-based therapist/clinician. Should you meet the qualifications of our grant, we will waive the $75 registration fee making the training FREE. Apply today by contacting us at [email protected]
