Foster Care| Trauma Informed Training
March 24 @ 1:30PM - 3:00PM
This is a ground level training to equip children’s ministry volunteers and staff with a basic understanding and knowledge of how and why a child from “a hard place” or with a difficult history may behave differently in a church environment.
We will first work to build empathy and understanding about how past experiences change a child’s brain and how this should change the way we view behavior. Then we will work to shift focus on understanding the reasons behind the behavior.
Ministry workers/volunteers will not only leave with empathy and understanding – but with several practical ways to connect with a child and meet the underlying need so that behavior change can truly happen while pouring into the children’s deepest need…relationship with Jesus and others!
