Play is the language in which children first learn about their world, so let’s dive in to using play every day! This workship will be interactive and help parents learn different types of play activities they can incorporate for stress reduction, attachment, and teaching their child or teen to regulate. Due to concerns with COVID-19, this event has been changed to a two-part Facebook live workshop through the CHSVA Facebook page.

Please contact CHS for any questions about child care.

Our staff will be available to answer any questions about adoption, foster care, trauma, or post adoption support. Please wear comfortable clothes as we will be practicing some of our activities during the workshop!
