Discussion Starter Videos
One of the most important things you can do as a parent is enter into ongoing, valuable conversation. We created Discussion Starters to help make that happen. Each quarter we produce a series of 6 sessions hosted by Mike and Kristin Berry, that are 12-15 minutes in length. These are ideal for agencies or support groups, but you and a friend, or a small group, could also utilize these. *SERIES 1 NOW AVAILABLE
Road Trip (For Foster & Adoptive Dads)
Road Trip is a mountaintop experience exclusively for foster and adoptive dads. It takes place every fall at Bear Trap Ranch in the mountains above Colorado Springs, CO. During Road Trip we foster safe space and open conversation so that dads can share openly and honestly without fear of judgement or criticism. You also get a chance to getaway for a few days and participate in fly fishing, hiking, exploring, napping (if you need it), micro-brewery trips, horseback riding, and much much more!
The Insight Conference
The Insight Conference is a 2 day live training event created to give you practical insight into your child’s trauma and how it affects their life and behaviors. Each year we partner with the world’s leading experts in trauma, attachment, and therapeutic strategies to craft an experience that is both education and inspirational. Our goal is for you to walk away from Insight with the tools you need to help you parent effectively, and transform your parenting journey.
