Love and Logic: Adults Supporting Youth with Challenging Pasts (Douglas County residents)

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until July 19, 2022

Free

Love and Logic: Adults Supporting Youth with Challenging Pasts® group will be held from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, June 7 through July 19. The group will meet in-person at The Village Family Service Center’s Alexandria office, 4133 Iowa St., Suite 105.
The group utilizes a trauma-informed curriculum to help parents, caregivers and others who serve children and teens who’ve experienced trauma. Participants will learn powerful insights into: how trauma affects the brain; why the intense and extremely upsetting behaviors seen in these kids represent attempts to self-protect and survive; the science behind healthy attachment relationships and why such bonds form the foundation for emotional and neurological healing; how to apply Love and Logic strategies so that adults can take good care of themselves while addressing root causes; and establishing healthy boundaries, avoiding destructive power struggles, overcoming defiance, and guiding these youth toward success.
Village Therapist Julie Wymore will lead participants through the interactive sessions.
This group is available to residents of Douglas County, Minnesota, at no cost thanks to grant funding from the Alexandria Area Community Foundation.
