    New Paths Parenting: Caring for Kids From Hard Places - August 24
    Gladney University is excited to offer a new trauma-informed training, New Paths Parenting: Caring for Children From Hard Places. This training is based on the latest research in child development combined with Gladney's 130 years of experience working with children. The day will be filled with important information about brain chemistry, how it affects behavior, and how you can help your child heal. The program is dynamic, interactive and designed especially for parents, soon-to-be parents, and professionals who work with "at risk" kids. Learn more and register here.
