You Can’t Push My Buttons Anymore: Resolving Your Own Trauma So You Can Effectively Parent Traumatized Children

All of us carry unresolved trauma from childhood into our adult lives. Often we don’t realize they’re there until we become parents and discover our kids can push our buttons like they’ve never been pushed before. This workshop begins with a look at the parts of the brain and how memories are formed. It then explores the components of the Instinctual Trauma Response model and how it explains unresolved trauma (aka: hot button issues) in children and adults. The remainder of the time will be spent exploring how unresolved trauma negatively affects our responses as parents and how to respond in positives ways instead.

The second half of the workshop looks at causes and symptoms of PTSD before reviewing effective methods of treatment and prevention. Participants will receive an extensive resource list and are encouraged to participate in the question and answer period at the end.
