Parenting a Child Who Has Experienced Trauma

Parenting a Child Who Has Experienced Trauma

a monthly skills and support group for parents and caregivers

Children who have experienced the trauma of sexual abuse need extra support, and may develop challenging behaviors and emotions.  Parents and caregivers also need support and guidance to nurture their children, families, and themselves.

This monthly skills and support group for parents and caregivers will address:

  • Common emotional, behavioral, and psychological reactions children have to experiencing trauma, and how to support you child in coping with them.
  • Coping with the vicarious trauma of learning about your child’s abuse
  • How to talk to your child about sexual abuse and safety in an age appropriate way.
  • Positive parenting strategies
  • Connecting with resources and community

Supporting your child through healing from trauma can feel overwhelming.  Help is available, you are not alone.  Join us August 17th from 4:00-5:00pm at the Verity main office (835 Piner Road, Suite D) for this free monthly group.  Please call 707-545-7270 to sign up.
