Workshop Details

A culturally sensitive 3 day workshop built on the idea that “it takes a village to raise a child”. Working with the research done by the Child Trauma Academy* and Dr. Bruce Perry*, we identify who are High Risk Kids and address how unresolved historical and generational issues are impacting them. Also discover what we can all do to help them truly find hope for their future. Our training approach is positive, hands on, action-oriented, interactive, practical and challenging.

You can begin using the ideas, concepts and actions shared at this workshop immediately and will notice changes in behavior in your community right away.

For those struggling financially, a limited number of public workshop scholarships may be available. Please contact us for details.
