Description
 
 

Presented by:

Amy Goldsmith began her career with Child Protective Services in Fort Worth, TX in 1989.  During this time she worked in all aspects of Family services, including 11 years in a supervisor position. She began training and speaking for the agency in 1991, training through the University of Texas and Texas Christian University. Speaking engagements involved outreach to the local communities, educating them about children's issues, especially those children waiting for adoptive families. She worked with the Attachment Center and Dr. Foster Cline from 1989-1999 and continues to volunteer with Children's service organizations to advocate for children and families.

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Protecting children from abuse and neglect sometimes means they must be removed from their homes.  While we are aware of the safety issues involved in the removal, how much do we focus on the emotional results of the move:  Separation from their home, their family, their friends, their school? What about the losses, pets, toys, their own bed? In this workshop we will identify loss responses in children and learn techniques to reduce loss-induced trauma, including step-by-step ways to prepare children during an emergency removal situation.
