You might consider another option.  I am the author of Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience.  It is a 12 hour curriculum that can be taught in one hour sessions or broken down in 15 minute to 20 minute sessions.  It is very flexible and can be taught by paraprofessionals.  You become your own experts. Here is a link to my website:

By chance I am leading a training in Santa Ana on Sept 5-6, 2019.  Attached is a flyer.  I can also send you and on line digital preview copy that you can look at for 30 days for free.  Look forward to hearing from you.

A quote from Jane Stevens founder of ACEs Connection.  "This is the best curriculum available." 

Look forward to hearing from you. 


Hi Melissa,

What types of trauma and are these parents or resource parents?  I am in San Diego and we are working on adapting a resource parent curriculum for parents.  We focus mainly on child abuse.  Feel free to reach out to me if you are interested in learning more.




I already have somebody scheduled; not trauma related, but IEP/Special Ed related, instead.

We were looking more for tools/tips parents can take home to help them with either bio/foster/adopted children who have experienced trauma.

We provide training/education to all parents/caregivers i.e. bio, foster, adoptive, kinship, guardian

If you would like to attend the event, you are welcome to do so and maybe share your resources.

I attached the flyer with more info. Please share this flyer with any/all parents/caregivers who you feel would benefit from the training.

Thank you!


Hi Melissa,

 There are a lot of great resources through the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).  Here is one example. but you can go on their website and find others:
