Unlocking Blocked Care: From Caregiver Stress to Compassion Resiliency

Parenting children who have challenging behaviours- perhaps as a result of trauma or attachment wounds –  is difficult, and it can hurt. When we are exposed to their ongoing distress, the risk for compassion fatigue and secondary trauma is high. How can we remain resilient, empathic and healthy whilst carrying out our essential and challenging role? Our SomaSmart Model for Compassion Resiliency supports and nourishes you, the parent/carer, because you matter too. We teach you powerful ways to restore your strength, hope and purpose that sustains you through the tough times.
