Upcoming Conference Can Help “Kids from Hard Places” Heal



helping kids from hard places conferenceDo you love a child who is from a troubled background, or who struggles with behavioral problems? Are you in a position to help babies, children or teens in our community who need support, but you aren’t sure you have the tools to address challenging behavior?

Kids from backgrounds of harm, neglect or trauma, _even before birth_, can face real challenges as they mature, due to alterations in brain development, sensory processing, neurochemistry and/or attachment. In many cases these alterations manifest as significant behavioral issues where traditional discipline falls short and can even make problems worse.

If you are a parent, caregiver, relative, foster parent, pastor, coach, teacher, counselor, social worker, or _anyone_ in a position to influence a child who faces challenges, the Amaris Ministries “Helping Kids from Hard Places” conference July 7th and 8thcan help you.

Learn insights and techniques from internationally renowned speakers and authors Dr. David and Jayne Schooler as they deliver comprehensive training on working with children who have experienced various forms of trauma.  Jayne is a recipient of the Ohio Child Welfare Trainer of the Year Award, has written numerous books, and along with her husband has traveled the country and world providing critical training to people working with children from hard places.

We at Amaris Ministries hope you don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the Schoolers as we have the privilege of having them here in the Imperial Valley at our “Helping Kids From Hard Places” Conference Thursday and Friday, July 7th and 8th, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at the Christ Community Church Fellowship Hall, at 585 West Orange Ave. in El Centro.

If you know a child with behavioral problems, if you are considering becoming a foster or adoptive parent, or even if you are pro-life but not sure how to help those who are in need of your support, this conference can help you change the course of a young person’s life.
