Dr. Bruce Perry webinar for families adopting from Haiti

January 27, 2010

I’m so pleased to announce that Dr. Bruce Perry has agreed to provide a webinar (free of charge!) to families currently adopting from Haiti.  You can find more information about it here:   Dr. Bruce Perry Webinar for Haiti Families

Dr. Perry and the Child Trauma Academy have made a huge impact on our understanding of trauma as it relates to children and brain development and we are very grateful that he will be addressing the needs of these kiddos and their families.

Please note:  This live webinar is for parents who are in process or who have just recently brought their children home.  It is not for folks who are just interested in learning about adopting from Haiti.  A recording will be made available after the live event.
