Research-Based TCK Care 101

In this workshop we look at the types of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and traumas that were common in our research of developmental trauma in TCKs. We look at how we can practically create protective factors in relationship, policies, and processes to bring hope to these challenges. Workshop content will be useful for staff, parents, teachers, organizational/company leadership, etc.

This is a prerequisite for Research-Based TCK Care 201.
