Helping Children Heal and Connect through Stories, Songs and Movies

11/09/2019 | 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Grossmont College

Type of Class

Instructors: Nicole Espinosa, LCSW & Gisella Gomez, MSW

Description: Many foster children may not know or understand their life story because the trauma they have experienced and the grief and loss created from that trauma has clouded that child’s narrative.

The use of children’s literature books, songs and movies is a fun and non-threatening way for your child to begin to heal. It allows you as the resource or adoptive parent to approach the issues of foster care and adoption in a creative and supportive way. In this workshop, participants will learn how trauma distorts a child’s story, the grief and loss cycle and how stories, songs and movies can be tools for parents to help their children heal, plus so much more.

Please note, no childcare is provided or available onsite. Do not bring babies or children to class. Thank you!
