FAB is Foster, Adopt, Biological kids. We offer it quarterly in the Student Center and families enjoy dinner together, then the kids hang out in the student center with volunteers playing games etc., while the parents attend an educational event.
Speaker Elizabeth Miranda, M.S., LCMFT, RFT-S
Topic: Why do they do that and what do I do? Understanding why traumatized children are impacted by day-to-day events, and practical ways of parenting to assist them in healing.
While Elizabeth began her career working with troubled teens in residential, church, and community agencies, she has worked for nearly 15 years as a therapist, focusing on foster/adoptive children and families. Melissa also works with adults, couples, and really enjoys teenagers. Her passion is helping families understand trauma and the unique ways it needs treated in relationships. In 2011 she launched a private practice in Leawood, KS where she continues to utilize play therapy in working with families in need.
A word from Elizabeth:
I love every part of what I do! While I do love seeing little ones and teens, seeing adults, couples, and family members of all ages is also my passion. I am blessed to have a front row seat on this journey, to see where it leads and be a part of it is an honor. I believe that change is possible; healing is possible- for anyone. I inevitably get asked, “is there hope?” Sometimes it can feel as if you’ve tried everything you know to do and it’s hopeless. I believe there is hope, and want to share it…hope for healing, for peace, for happiness.
As a parent, you are your child’s most important resource. Helping you do the toughest, most rewarding job in the world is a huge part of this process if I’m seeing you or your child. I want you to experience a safe, supportive environment that will offer you the tools you need to be the parent you want to be, and see your child or teen thrive.Click here to register.
