Last weekend I attended a “simulcast” for one day, to learn about Dr. Karyn Purvis’ work with troubled children. She is changing the way we connect with traumatized children, and it is amazing! Dr. Purvis’ work is re-shaping how we help children heal. I have listed her work on my “resources” tab.
When we had Lilly, we did the best we could with what we knew. If we had used Dr. Purvis’ techniques, Lilly may have progressed and healed more quickly. That doesn’t change the crazy, funny, heart-wrenching story, though, and if you haven’t read it, you should!
To be honest, I was sad on the way home for what we did not know when we were going through it, although we used some of the techniques by instinct, and that was so cool to realize.
There should be rejoicing over this important work, because it will help children now and in the future. Thank you, Dr. Purvis!
