What Happened to You? Collaborative Book Study

March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

NOTE: As of 11/15/22, REGISTRATION is FULL and has closed.

Join Formed Families Forward staff for a collaborative book study designed for foster, adoptive and kinship families and the professionals who work with them to learn together.

The study focuses on What Happened to You by Bruce D. Perry, M.D., PhD and Oprah Winfrey. The book examines the impact of trauma and adversity and how healing must begin with a shift to asking “What happened to you?” rather than “What’s wrong with you?” We will discuss how problematic behaviors in children and youth exposed to trauma are actually survival brain adaptations and how this understanding can change the way we engage with children and teens at home and at school to build resilience.

Registrants must commit to participating in three virtual book study sessions 7- 8:30 PM on Wednesdays, January 18, February 8 and March 1.

Free copies of the book will be mailed to participants.
