Understanding and Supporting Your Child Through Trauma: Part 1

May 03, 2024 at 1:00pm - 2:30pm Eastern Time (US & Canada)

In the first of three sessions in this series, we will focus on the impact of trauma and the different ways that children in the FOP community (those living with FOP as well as their siblings) may be exposed to traumatic experiences.

For many children with FOP and their siblings, trauma is an unfortunate, and at times unavoidable, part of childhood. Whether that trauma is the result of a medical experience, a loss of movement or occurs by witnessing or interacting with a medically compromised sibling, it can have lasting effects on the individual. This three-part series will focus on the impact and stages of healing for children who experience trauma, as well as ways for caregivers to manage stress reactions and safeguard themselves from emotional exhaustion.

It is encouraged to attend all three sessions, but not necessary.

Presenting the series is our guest speaker Susan Dannen. Susan is a Licensed Independent Social Worker with over 25 years of experience in the mental health field.
