Presented by Laura Ornelas, LCSW Clinical Social Worker
Children who have experienced loss, separations, and/or trauma often struggle with understanding their past. This tends to leave them feeling like they were responsible, that there is something wrong with them, and/or that the outcome would be different were it not for them. Because they do not have the mental capacity of adults, it can be very hard to explain to them otherwise. Instead, they can be left with big feelings of guilt and shame and inaccurate thoughts that result in low self-worth and poor self-esteem, which can play out over a lifetime in their behavior. Come hear more at this workshop about how parents can address these concerns at their root through simple daily interactions with their child.
