Friday, July 19 • 10:30 am-12 pm | Building Attachment-Focused Communities
Join us to learn about a practical and sustainable approach to healing developmental trauma and attachment repair. Children who have experienced early childhood trauma are a part of a larger community of teachers, social workers, therapists, and others. As a
result, training and support services need to reflect a community-based approach for consistent support and healing. We’ll explore developmental trauma, therapeutic techniques, and ways to change your community to help children.

Roll up your sleeves and be ready to take home realistic ideas to help regulate your child.
