Parenting in SPACE is a conference, some would call an experience, that offers hope to the parents of children and youth who have experienced trauma in early childhood by providing parents with the opportunity to connect, learn, and laugh. Many of the moms and dads who attend Parenting in SPACE had children who joined their families through adoption. Some by birth. Most of their children have very challenging behaviors and great challenges managing their emotions. Parenting in SPACE provides moms and dads with many opportunities to learn the theory, and especially the practice, of therapeutic parenting through SPACE, a parenting model that uses the power of human connection to help children achieve greater self-regulation, stronger relationships and deeper self-worth. Parenting in SPACE offers workshops, support groups, face-to-face time with mental health professionals and a community of other parents - all of whom truly understand the experiences of parents who have children who experience behavioral and emotional challenges.
