Displacing Shame | Problematic Sexualized Behavior

May 8th and 15th from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Displacing Shame Chosen Care 1

Two part online training presented by Chosen Care 

Have you ever felt alone, or worse yet judged as you try to help your child navigate challenging behaviors like pornography addiction or sexualized behaviors? Do you live with fear of how your child’s decisions may affect your other children or family? Fear of what others would think if they knew you were struggling with this as a family? Maybe you opened your home to a child, full of hope, only to have problematic sexual behaviors come seemingly out of nowhere, causing deep fear and doubt. 

We get it. At Chosen, we know that these behaviors can be stigmatizing and isolating. We often hear from parents and caregivers that they deeply desire to provide support for their child while at the same time feel afraid, ill-equipped, and unprepared. The journey can be heavy both for the struggling child and parents/caregivers.   

Dates: May 8th and 15th from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
