Training Description

We are all driven by various aspects or “parts” of the self. When we experience traumatic events and difficult childhood experiences, parts of the self surface to protect us from being harmed in the future. These protector parts can appear in a variety of ways; from anger, anxiety and depression to addiction and the inner critic. In this training, we will look at how parts play a role in the lives of system involved youth (SIY) and families as a result of childhood trauma and broken attachment bonds. Participants will learn how to use a parts work approach to support SIY and families to heal the parts that where harmed and regain balance to connect to the “original whole self” that is centered, calm, balanced, and directed by self-love.

Learning Objectives

1. Participants will be able to define and describe parts work.

2. Participants will engage in and learn a minimum of 3 different ways the parts work approach can support attachment healing SIY and families.

3. Participants will identify at least 1 way the centered part is accessed to support healing attachment wounds in SIY and families.
