Parenting a hurt child calls for innovative, creative, and nurturing ideas. Too often, parents can’t understand why techniques used to successfully parent other children simply have no effect. This session will explore which parenting tools do not work and why, and help parents retire those tools without guilt. Parents will then learn new ways to help their child heal.

Presented by Regina Kupecky, who trains nationally and internationally on adoption issues, sibling issues, and attachment. She has co-authored Adopting the Hurt Child, Parenting the Hurt Child, A Foster-Adoption Story: Angela and Michael’s Journey, the curriculum My Brother My Sister: Sibling Issues in Foster Care and Adoption, and a novel entitled The Mystery of the Multiple Mothers: A Cub County Caper.
