What Am I Missing? Learning the Difference Between Feeling Safe and Being Safe

Children entering Resource Care don’t come to your home with an instruction booklet. Even though you’ve done everything you can think of to make each child feel welcome and safe in your home, sometimes nothing seems to work. This training offers insight into how trauma can sometimes cause concerning behaviors. You will learn to use your trauma lens to view safety from the child’s point of view, and gain creative strategies to add to your resource parenting toolkit.

Presented by: Central Maine Youth Trauma Initiative (CMYTI), a National Child Traumatic Stress Network grant funded project of  MaineGeneral Medical Center’s Edmund Ervin Pediatric Center, is offering four online Resource Parent/Kinship Caregiver trainings. The trainings are free and count toward relicensing education hours. Each training is scheduled for 90 minutes to allow for 60 minutes of training, and 30 minutes of discussion/networking for those who are interested.
