The Heart of Support: Being a Healing Presence
an online event for clinicians
The Attachment Trauma Center Institute welcomes Karen Doyle Buckwalter, Director of Program Strategy at Chaddock, for The Heart of Support: Being a Healing Presence for Parents and Caregivers.
What is it (exactly) that we’re doing when we engage with caregivers?
Are we there for the transmission of superior information we have and they don’t?
Are we there to correct caregiving errors?
Have we found that this approach actually changes anything?
What are our fundamental beliefs about the families we care for?
Perhaps we will have to admit some prejudices, replace them with respect, remember what helped US when we needed it most, and focus on the power of relationship. In the process, we will create a new paradigm for supporting parents and caregivers.
