This intensive training you'll get tools and strategies to better treat and heal trauma that exists within the family. Learn how to improve the lives of children, adolescents and their caregivers by increasing quality of stability and connection that is shared between family members — before it’s too late.

Dr. Robert Rhoton will show you how the treatment of children and adolescents is enhanced by approaching treatment from a family based perspective. He will teach a process for stabilizing families to improve outcomes of trauma focused treatment. You will be able to help reduce the shame, guilt and judgement that are a result of the trauma and stress that are active within families.

Leave this training with greater confidence in treating trauma in children and adolescents, as well as, reduce the impact of that trauma on their family or caregivers.

Learn how to capture the resources of a family to improve care and create greater safety and stability for the family. This approach has the ability to not only improve the life of a child, but change the dynamic of an entire family for the better. Come and learn how to deeply impact children and adolescents through family engagement and treatment for trauma.
