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.

  • “How do I get everyone in my family to attend?”
  • “Everyone who is a parent or works with kids should attend this workshop”
  • “Why couldn’t my parents have taken this training”
  • “I finally know how to get through and make a difference”
  • “This workshop helped me more than I ever thought it would”
  • “I wish I would have done this training several years ago”
  • “Life Changing”
