Strong Families: Stress, Trauma & Addiction Workshop

Information Session, Strong Families

Parkland School Division is proud to partner with Alberta Parenting For The Future to present another FREE information session for local families.

In our upcoming Strong Families session, Professional Counselor Jenn Banas will walk participants through the nature of trauma, and how it can manifest in the brain, and subsequently, our behaviours. Discover how unprocessed trauma, including attachment trauma, can predispose children to addictive behaviours, and why understanding attachment can give context for addictive behaviours. Finally, learn how to spot the signs of addiction, and what tools are available for support.

Date: Tuesday, February 15, 2022
Time: 6:30-8pm
Location: Online Zoom Webinar / Discussion Group
Presenter: Jenn Banas, Professional Counselor & Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (Parkland Wellness Center)

We all dream of being a happy, healthy family, and we hope to raise our children to be happy and healthy, too! What happens though, when life isn’t so happy and healthy, and trauma and addiction show up in the story? Learn more about the nature of trauma, how it plays a role in addiction, and how attachment and connection are the greatest healers. This session should provide you with tools, insight and hope for the future of your family.
