Healing The Hurt Child– 3.5 CE Credits


General Information

The Healing the Hurt series integrates mindfulness, positive psychology, neurology, trauma-informed care, and healing practices into practical, everyday tools.



Healing the Hurt Child addresses relational trauma and the ways it affects the human spirit. A model for healing will be described that looks at old concepts, like attachment and loss, from new perspectives. It works to answer the question “Why do we suffer?” so that we are better equipped to RESTore children to love and trust others. The primary healing strategy will focus on the role and rebuilding of identity.
