Mind Matters Training–Overview Webinar
Santa Ana, CA

with Author,  Carolyn Rich Curtis, PhD
September 5 & 6, 2019

When bad things happen to children, it can impact them for the rest of their lives. It can interfere with their abilities to learn, form relationships, and cope with the challenges of life. Staff can also be negatively impacted by toxic stress.

It does not have to be this way!

Exciting news! Mind Matters: Overcoming Adversity and Building Resilience can change those patterns and build protective habits for a positive and meaningful life plus mitigate the impact of secondary trauma in those who serve these youth using the current research and neuroscience.

Attend this quick webinar to learn more about Mind Matters from Dr. Carolyn Curtis and how the intensive 2-day training in September will prepare you to teach the program to those you serve.

Program developer, Dr. Carolyn Curtis, will be leading a two-day intensive training in her Mind Matters program on September 5 and 6 in Santa Ana, California. Come join her.
