November Learning to Care

Monday, November 18, 2019, 6:00 PM

Topic: Discipline for Children from Trauma: Responding to Challenging Behaviors Description: There are a wide array of parenting tactics that seem to work for a child with typical, healthy beginnings but for an at-risk child who has experienced compromised beginnings the bar is raised for parents. This presentation includes practical ideas for disciplining children while still maintaining feelings of safety and security and focusing on attachment. Speaker Bio: Whitney White, International Education Counselor, Lifeline Children’s Services In this role, she has developed training and curriculum for the ministry, counseled adoptive families, and trained caregivers around the world in international children’s home settings. She and her husband, Adam, have been married since 2008 and enjoy traveling internationally and partnering in ministry together. They have a precious son named Judson. Whitney studied psychology and leadership in college and then went on to obtain a Master’s of Education in Community Counseling. Whitney has experience providing parenting assistance and working with children and adults facing attachment challenges, trauma, anxiety, grief, depression, anger, and marital difficulties. Whitney is a Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®) Practioner and uses Theraplay® principles in her work with children and families. She has also been educated in principles of Corrective Attachment Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Attachment-Focused Therapy.
