Dealing with difficult behavior in a way that prioritizes connection
Being a parent is a hard job! It’s exhausting and emotional and rewarding all at the same time. It can be even harder with kids who have especially difficult behaviors. So how do we correct those behaviors while targeting their hearts and prioritizing connection?
Parenting That Corrects and Connects
Parenting That Corrects and Connects is designed to help parents understand the unique backgrounds and needs of kids who come from hard places, and equip you with tools to effectively meet those needs, build trust, and help your children heal and grow.
The training is taught from a gospel-centered perspective and reinforces the fact that we are all made in the image of a loving, relational, redeeming God who has created us to connect in relationship—both with him and with others.
The training is a 2-day intensive, taught by trained adoptive parents in an interactive environment, and is based on principles and tools from the Empowered to Connect Parent Training, which is based on the Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and her colleagues at the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU.
During the training, you will gain greater understanding about:
- The impact of your child’s history
- What you bring to the parent-child relationship
- How to see connection and discipline through a biblical, gospel-centered lens
- Strategies for how to connect while correcting
- Tools for dealing with difficult behavior in a way that prioritizes connection
