VIRTUAL GROUP: Trauma Informed Parenting
December 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Adoptive, Kinship & Guardianship parents and caregivers: Please join us for a trauma-informed virtual support group just for you! This group is especially for caregivers who are:
- Parenting youth with trauma histories
- Parenting youth with emotional or behavioral challenges and/or diagnoses such as RAD, DMDD, & ODD.
The group meets on the 3rd Monday of each month from noon (12:00 pm) – 1:00 pm. and occasionally from 6:00 pm-7:00 pm. There will be monthly focus areas for discussion and/or guest speakers to support ongoing learning, but always with plenty of time for connection and support. Please register early as group size is limited.
This group is facilitated by Wisconsin Adoption & Permanency Support GIFTS Case Manager Allison Kunkel MS, APSW. With questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: This group is specifically designed to provide support for the caregivers of youth with a high level of presenting need because of past trauma histories, emotional/behavioral challenges, or diagnoses. You will be asked to confirm that this applies to you within your registration. If you are interested in a more social group that still has a connected parenting approach, please check out some of our other virtual support group options at https://wisapsp.org/virtual-support-groups/.
This online group will utilize Zoom to connect over video chat. You will need to have access to a smartphone with the free Zoom app or a computer with a camera and microphone.
