Regulate, Refuel & Reconnect- Austin, TX Conference

January 20, 2014

Please save the date for the 1st Annual Central Texas Attachment & Trauma Center Conference!

April 4, 2014 ~ Austin, TX ~ 9am – 3:30pm



Parenting a child with a history of trauma can be traumatizing to parents and families.  Over time, you may have become exhausted while struggling to cope with the cycle of trauma behaviors. If you know the “how to” but are struggling to do the “how to,” it may be due to the trauma of parenting trauma. Join CTATC for our First Annual Conference to “Regulate, Refuel, and Reconnect.” Drawing on research and innovation from the fields of neuroscience, attachment, and child development, this conference will address the mind, body and spirit of YOU (and your children) to help attendees better understand their critical role in helping a child to grow, heal, and thrive in a relational context.


Conference sessions will include information on how trauma causes our nervous systems to become closed and reactive instead of open and receptive, as well as the importance of attachment and how our attachment styles impact our children’s. The afternoon sessions will be full of fun and practical ideas to reset your nervous system and heal your own trauma through self-regulation, mindfulness, and the power of play. (CEUs available)


Robyn Gobbell, LCSW, Suzette Lamb, LPC-S, LCPAA, Katie Spillar, LMFT Associate, Elisha Bidwell, LMFT Associate


Nourishing snacks will be provided throughout the day.  A healthy lunch will be served and is included in the cost of admission.

    Will this be video taped and available for purchase after the conference?  I live in Iowa and am not able to afford to attend, as wonderful as it sounds.

      Hi Judee, At this point we don’t have any plans to audio or video the conference. We’ll have to see if we have the A/V capabilities. So glad you are interested! Thanks!

      Hi Joanne,
      I know my team would love to travel. We would need someone “on the group” in a city we travel to, to host, organize, promote, etc.

    So glad some families will be helped. Great to see new therapies and research developed. My adopted son is 20 and it feels too late. At a social/ emotional age of 13, we can only do so much. Enormous and devastating consequences for everyone. Good luck.
