Helping Families After ACEs Replay


Listen now for new insight into recovery after Adverse Childhood Experiences.

“Where other [practices] may focus on different ways to handle the emotional experience, teaching techniques for self-regulation, Hand in Hand looks at what is happening in the environment and what happens when we provide holding for that emotional experience.” – Maya Coleman, PhD

Clinical psychologist Maya Coleman, PhD and pediatrician, Dr. Pam Oatis discuss:

  • Five tools that help the whole family after ACEs.
  • A family-centered process to foster emotional recovery.
  • How play can be used effectively as a healing tool after trauma.
  • Fascinating neuroscience behind the Hand in Hand Parenting tools.

As a professional, you know that parenting gets hard when children, or their parents, experience trauma. And you know that parenting gets most complicated in the areas that were difficult in the parent’s own past experience. But how do you explore those issues with parents who are already under so much pressure?

Now you can feel confident as you guide parents to resolve their issues, help them find support in others, and explore important relationship-oriented tools they can use to build greater emotional connection in their families. Join our next Professionals Intensive in Hand in Hand Parenting Tools and together we can get many more families on the path to healing.
