A workshop for parents on understanding the impact of childhood abuse and trauma on parenting, including supportive tools and resources.

This online workshop will be held via Zoom. Registrants will receive the Zoom link via email prior to the workshop date, and a recording link will be sent out after the workshop for those who cannot attend live.


You thought you were “over it” -- those terrible things happened a long time ago. Maybe you’ve been to therapy or maybe enough time has gone by and your past feels long gone. Then you have children and begin reliving your childhood trauma through flashbacks, panic attacks and other post-traumatic stress symptoms. You are not alone in what you are struggling with and healing is possible.

This workshop will focus on understanding the impact of childhood abuse and trauma on parenting, including what steps we can take to heal ourselves while raising our children. We will cover the Adverse Childhood Experiences study and teach about the neuroscience of trauma. You will leave with some simple tools you can use for self-regulation and a list of resources to help you build your circle of support.

Participants will gain an understanding of:

- how early childhood trauma affects mental, emotional, and physical health throughout the lifespan
- common triggers for parenting survivors
- common reactions and symptoms experienced by parenting survivors
- the role self and co-regulation play in recalibrating the body’s stress response system
