Charlotte "Foster Parent Support Group & Training" Sept. 18
September 18, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
A Foster Parent Support Group session will take place on September 18, 2018 at Children’s Home Society of NC; 2200 East 7th Street, Charlotte NC, 28204. Second Floor Training Room from 6pm to 8pm. Child care and food will be provided. Dinner will be provided for the children as well. Two hours will count towards required yearly training.
The training topic will be the film screening and discussion of “Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope.” Resilience is a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. For those who are already familiar with this research and for those who are not, this screening will provide an opportunity to view the film that is being used in many circles as a discussion-starter about the science of toxic stress, and the steps we can all take to promote resilience and well-being in children. A member of the training team will be facilitating a discussion after the film. We hope you can join us.
