Topic: The Effects of Unresolved Trauma on Parenting

Parental emotion regulation and coping skills in dealing with stressful events in life have a significant impact on the child’s emotional and social development, especially during infancy and early school years. Children typically learn to regulate their emotions better if their parents manage their own stress well. In contrast, unsupportive, distressed parenting can induce less effort in children to regulate their emotions and use effective coping skills in response to stress. We will discuss the unresolved effects of trauma when it comes to parenting with guest momologist and Behavior Specialist, Marcella Tarpley
