Important info: Caregivers are not required to share their story at any of these workshops. These are not therapy groups. Workshops are presented mainly in lecture format, and are an opportunity to listen, ask questions, and learn skills to help your family’s healing. These workshops are intended to complement other mental health supports available in the community.

Summer workshops are open only to parents and caregivers of young people who have experienced trauma. Professionals (including students and early childhood educators) interested in attending a workshop should check back for sessions in Fall 2018.
