Please join adoptive mother and skilled trainer, Brenda Benning, as she offers new perspectives into your child’s behaviors, while offering real life techniques that can help regulate these same behaviors. This is a specialized training for families who are or may be parenting children with traumatic histories and/or attachment issues. This 16 hour series follows the model and book by Heather T. Forbes, “Beyond Consequences, Logic and Control.” Parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to safely share their own experiences and build a support system with other families who are living with the same unique experiences often found in adoptive, foster, and kinship families.

Brenda Benning, MSW, LICSW received her Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Minnesota and has trained with Heather Forbes, founder of the Beyond Consequences Inc., on multiple occasions. She is currently counseling families individually in home and in group settings. Her primary focus is adoptive families with children healing from trauma histories and attachment issues. Brenda and her husband are parenting ten children, nine through adoption; multiple with diagnosed trauma histories and attachment issues. By using techniques from both “Beyond Consequences” and her own book “Restoring the Hope, Empathy and Love in Adoptive Families”, she has been able to assist families and her own children in their healing journey.
