How to Help Your Children Deal with Trauma

We have all been affected by trauma in some way or another. Whether it is watching a tragedy unfold in another part of the world, in the United States, Missouri, St. Louis, or your own home. Often these events make us feel uneasy and overwhelmed whether they have happened directly or indirectly to us.  The presentation How to Help Your Child Deal with Trauma aims to increase our knowledge about trauma and learn how to help our children.

NCADA, in Olivette (located by Mobile on the Run), has a wonderful meeting space and has offered to host the event on Monday, January 28 from 7:00-8:00 P.M.  The presenter Gail Knipsshild is from FamilyForward, an organization that utilizes a comprehensive and respectful approach to understanding child development and the impact of trauma. This approach recognizes that each child brings unique biological and genetic traits, relational experiences, and personality characteristics into every interaction with parents and other caregivers.

When you RSVP there is a space to ask questions in advance. Mrs. Knipshild will work the answers to submitted questions into her presentation. There will also be a 10-15 minute question and answer session at the end of the presentation.
