Two Resources on Parenting and Trauma

"Parenting is one of the hardest jobs in the world", says trauma expert Kay Saakvitne, PhD. Parents and caregivers who are survivors of early childhood trauma and/or are involved in domestic violence have an even more challenging role.  Two excellent resources available free on the web can provide guidance for parents who are survivors of trauma and domestic violence, and for professionals who work with them.  Click here for Dr. Saakvitne's Parent Resource Handbook: Support for Survivor Parents.  Click here for  Parenting After Violence:  A Guide for Practitioners written by Darla Spence Coffey, MSW, PhD for the Institute for Safe Families.
