APAC Webinar- Seeing and Healing Trauma Through the Family With Dr. Greg Manning


This interactive and didactic conversation focuses on addressing the critical importance of professional and para-professional providers stepping out of the role of experts and replacing ourselves with the families we serve. A basic overview of trauma will be provided followed by a conversation addressing how such a change in roles will redefine how we see and engage our families and yield better long-term results for our families.

1) Nature, scope, and impact of trauma in the lives of our children and families
2) Seeing and treating the family as the experts
3) Challenges and opportunities in our families being the experts
4) Family relationships are the only source of authentic, culturally aligned, and lasting healing.
