A New Community Just for You!
Supporting children and families who have experienced great loss and endured extreme trauma is a daunting task. Helpers often fall prey to vicarious trauma and burn-out, and too many give up this specialization or leave the field entirely. As a result, many of the children and families with the most complex needs are paired with the least experienced helpers. At Chaddock, we have the experience and longevity to understand the type of support needed to keep the best and brightest engaged with this work.
The Developmental Trauma and Attachment Institute is for helpers who seek to be rejuvenated and revitalized in their work with children and families. This type of renewal and confidence is a natural by-product of gaining specialized knowledge, advanced skills, consultation, guidance, mentorship, and most importantly being in a community providing the experience of being seen and understood. Yet, who has time and resources to seek out all of that? No one. That’s why we have designed an experience and a soft place to land where all of these needs will be met in one central place.

Karen Doyle Buckwalter, along with experienced Chaddock staff, will be part of this process. Be prepared to discover wisdom you couldn’t have found alone for your most vexing clinical challenges.
A DEEPER DIVE WEBINARS

Oh, and consider yourself covered for the majority of your CEs since as an Institute member you can earn 12 CEs* per year, 1 each month. The monthly webinars will also be recorded and available for you to watch on your own time if you aren’t able to catch the live offering.
REFLECTION & CONNECTION CIRCLE GATHERING
On the 4th Friday of the month this live gathering will be structured with the Circle Way Methodology. Circle gatherings will be hosted by Institute faculty specifically for the needs of the Institute Community. See you around the rim where you will find compassion and sustenance for your journey.
Once upon a time, fire led our ancestors into the circle. It made sense to put the fire in the center and to gather around it. A circle defined physical space by creating a rim with a common sense of sustenance lighting up the center.

A Leader in Every Chair
