Trauma-Informed Parenting: Creating a Nurturing & Stable Home
About The Episode
Trauma-informed parenting — it might sound like something more extreme than you need. But the same strategies can help every parent and caregiver feel more equipped to respond to children’s behaviors, particularly in the wake of the pandemic. Listen in to this podcast episode, as Dr. Pardis Khosravi, licensed psychologist at CHC, explains what trauma means, how it might manifest among various age groups, and how we can connect with our kids so they feel loved and validated.
Pardis Khosravi, PsyD
Licensed Psychologist & Clinical Program Manager at CHC
As parents, we all want to create a safe, nurturing and stable home for our families. And the collective, cumulative trauma of the past year has made it harder than ever. So it makes sense that we might turn to trauma-informed parenting, often utilized by foster parents or those whose children have experienced trauma, for ideas. In this podcast episode, we sat down with Dr. Pardis Khosravi, licensed psychologist and Clinical Program Manager at CHC, to learn strategies for supporting our kids and building self-growth and resilience in challenging times. Dr. Khosravi explains what trauma does to a child’s brain, how it may manifest during different stages of a child’s development, and how the research on post-traumatic growth shows that positive qualities can come out of really challenging events.
