    Workshop: Thinking About Attachment and Trauma through the Eyes of a Child

    9:30 am - 12:30 pmThe Westchester Institute for Human Development, Valhalla, NY- Cedarwood Hall Auditorium

    This workshop is being offered for Foster and Adoptive parents and professionals working with these families. It will focus on understanding attachment theory and how secure attachments are formed. Separation from birth parents, exposure to traumatic and neglectful experiences all increase the likelihood that a child will have difficulty trusting caregivers and forming and maintaining positive relationships. Strategies for helping children and families survive and endure these traumas will be considered.
    This workshop will include a presentation and time for discussion, questions and answers.

    Presenters: Angela C.P. LaManna, LCSW and Kate Washton, LCSW
    3 Continuing Education Credits (CEU’s) will be offered for a fee of $25.
