*From the Conscious Discipline blog –
Across our country, there are thousands of children in the foster care system who need permanent family connections to carry them into adulthood. Conscious Discipline celebrates the countless families who say YES to foster care and adoption. Equally important is acknowledging the unique challenges that often accompany this choice.
Conscious Discipline is designed to create the safety and connection that children and adults need to build healthy relationships, solve problems and thrive. Safety and connection are especially important for children who have experienced trauma, a category that applies to all children who find themselves in foster care.
That’s why we’re introducing a FREE three-part webinar series titled Building Safety and Connection in Foster and Adoptive Families with Amy Speidel.
- Session 1: Responding to the Unique Needs of Your Child
- Session 2: Helping Your Child Adjust to a New Environment
- Session 3: Learning to Handle Difficult Behavior with Success
Amy is a Conscious Discipline Master Instructor as well as a foster and adoptive mother. She is passionate about supporting families as they navigate trauma and transition. Amy has decades of experience coaching parents and educators and is eager to share what she’s learned with you.
Over three video sessions, Amy shares stories, inspiration, and specific tips and examples that will help you deepen connection and emotional health in your family. Topics covered include helping children acclimate, teaching expectations and skills in a way that feels safe, providing structure, anticipating events that may be triggering, and managing big behaviors.
We’re hopeful that this resource will help you navigate the journey Amy describes as “complicated, messy, and completely worth it.”
As always, I wish you and your family well
