Episode 17: “Parenting With Trauma”

When encountering resistance, anger, or apathy in parents working toward reunification, there may be more to the story than first presents itself.  This week we speak with Sandi Cimino about trauma, ACES, and the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework.  Sandi is a certified trainer with the Protective Factors Framework and walks us through recognizing signs of trauma, understanding the effects of trauma on children and parents, and discusses practical solutions for helping parents succeed through trauma.  This is a great discussion with tons of practical tools and resources to check out in the show notes.  Don’t forget to join the discussion by calling in and leaving your comments at 480-648-8374!  #HelpingParentsSucceed #HPSPodcast
