This training is targeted to those who support system involved youth and their families within community settings such as in the schools and homes. We will focus on understanding how to understand unhealthy family relationship patterns and traumatic attachment ruptures via the use of Pain in the Heart Theory (PITH). For youth in the continuum of care, their lives are very disrupted by these ruptures due to removal from home, losing placements, deportation and incarceration, just to mention a few. Once we are able to understand the pain, we will be ready to know where the supportive healing needs to occur so that our youth can start experiencing positive outcomes in all of their settings including more likelihood of not being removed from the home, successful reunifications and more sustainable permanent placements!
