Gain Insight Into Trauma
Change Your Approach
Build Trust & Connection
We know that the foster and adoptive parenting journey can be difficult. There's no question you love your children, and want to do the best job you can in parenting them. But often you feel tired, overwhelmed, and lost when it comes to understanding their traumatic past and how to parent in a way that connects with them and builds lifelong trust.
That's where The Insight Conference comes in. We understand this struggle because we're parents just like you. Our goal with Insight is to provide personal access to world-renowned experts who can give you practical insight into your child's trauma and how it affects their life and behaviors. But it doesn't end there. We also want you to walk away from Insight with the tools to help you parent effectively, and thus, transform your parenting journey.
We hope to see you at The Insight Conference, 2021
Spend 2 days personally interacting with world-renowned thought leaders and experts who will transform the way you think about trauma, attachment and your child...
