Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) occurs more often for children in foster care than for veterans who have been in combat and yet many of these children are seen as having bad behavior or something is wrong with them. By shifting our mindsets to see behaviors as adaptive survival skills, we can support children in learning new ways of relating to their environments. This workshop will help caregivers understand trauma, how it impacts the brain and how to use their parent/child relationship to guide healing for their children.  Christina Corwin, MA, LMFT is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and co-owner of Cedar Valley Center for Child & Family Therapy, PLLC in Eagan, MN. She has worked with children and families for 20 years and works with many adoptive families in her private practice, focusing on trauma and attachment repair.
