    In this class, taught by Shari Simmons, we delve into the complex dynamics of children who, due to trauma, have taken on parental responsibilities for themselves, their siblings, and even their parents. This phenomenon, known as parentification, can have profound effects on a child's development and well-being.

    How can you turn moments of struggle into moments of connection? Discover how brain development, implicit memories, and the “6 F’s” (Fight, Flight, Freeze, Friend, Fidget, Flop) can influence your foster or adoptive child’s reactions to traditional methods of discipline, and develop compassionate, creative, and effective strategies for limit-setting and consequences that simultaneously enhance healthy attachment patterns in the child-caregiver relationship. Tools to cope with common struggles will be addressed, including separation anxiety, transitions, homework, aggression, lying, stealing, hoarding, argumentativeness, and sleep anxiety.

    What is ABA (applied behavior analysis)? How can ABA support our children and youth from hard places? Is there such a thing as “trauma-informed ABA”? These questions and more will be explored in this webinar focused on behavior supports for children and youth in foster care and what makes an ABA program trauma-informed. Our instructor will discuss the basics of applied behavior analysis, behavior assessments and treatment plans that take trauma and adverse childhood experiences into account, as well as interventions common in the ABA world that might be contraindicated when working with children and youth who have experienced abuse, neglect, and other ACEs. We will also discuss questions to consider when interviewing ABA providers to find a best fit for your family, and the youth you support, as well as securing funding for ABA services via Medicaid.

    The histories of youth in foster and adoptive families often involve details that can feel difficult to discuss as a caregiver. Learn how to share your child’s history with them in ways that promote healthy communication, offer developmentally appropriate language, and support the reduction of potential negative internalizations. Navigating these conversations with youth whose backgrounds specifically include abuse/neglect/domestic violence, substance abuse, incarceration, rape/prostitution, and human trafficking will be discussed.
