tools on how to cope with trauma and loss. You will walk away with practical tools and information that will shift your perspective on both you and your child’s behavior.
This webinar is open to adults, parents, caregivers, and professionals working with children.
She will explain what is considered a traumatic event, how it impacts the brain and nervous system, and
what we can do to move forward in life with a whole heart. There is always hope and the potential for
post-traumatic growth if we take the time to process our experiences. Beth used personal experience to
motivate her to become a specialist in trauma and loss therapy.
She not only knows the clinical tools to heal, but she has been through it herself.
