Attention Concord DCYF District Office as mental health providers who regularly work with children and families living outside their families of origin (with relatives, in foster care, in guardianship and kinship care arrangements, pre and post adoption:
DCYF currently has two grant funded projects that are targeted at improving the mental and emotional health well-being outcomes of children who have been exposed to trauma. Some of you came to our informational meeting last year to hear about the “Partners for Change” project. There is a second grant called the “New Hampshire Adoption Preparation and Preservation Project,” or NHAPP for short. Through NHAPP we are sponsoring trainings around the state about Complex Trauma, Attachment, and Adoption Competency, for both DCYF staff and for Mental Health providers.
The training in Concord will take place on October 16, 2015, from 9AM- 12PM at the Brown Building. I have attached a flyer with a description and more information. This training is targeted at mental health providers and clinicians, so if you do not fit in that category I am happy to remove you from this list.
I hope that many of you are able to join us for this free training. Feel free to share this flyer with your colleagues that also work with this population. Dartmouth will also be offering ongoing case consultation calls after the training, some of which will be topic based (ex. how to integrate this information into TF-CBT and CPP; common issues that present in family work related to this population). Myself or a colleague from Dartmouth will send you more specific information when additional trainings are available in your area.
I look forward to working with many of you! Please let me know if you have any questions.
