Blocked Care: How To Regain Compassion for Yourself or Those you Care For

May 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

No matter how much we love our children or our role as a parent or caregiver, there is no question that it is hard work!  The neglect, trauma, or abandonment suffered in a child’s earliest years can trigger a lingering fear response—an involuntary, anxiety-based apprehension around the concept of accepting and receiving care and affection. Reflexively, adoptive or foster parents grow weary of trying to love a child, who struggles to receive or give it themselves.  This training will help you recognize the signs of blocked care, learn the steps for overcoming blocked care, and develop empathy and compassion for yourself or other parents who are struggling.

This training is geared toward parents and professionals.  Foster parent training hours and professional CEUs are available.

Our presenter, Cindy Cramer, has worked with foster and adoptive families for over 20 years and serves as the Family Support Coordinator for Firefly’s foster care and adoption teams.  She has 24 years of experience as a foster parent and is an adoptive parent to six children.
