Central Texas Attachment & Trauma Center is excited to invite you to our 2nd Annual Conference- EMPOWER, EMBRACE, EMERGE- Another Nourishing Conference for Parents and Caregivers!


We had a BLAST last year at REGULATE, REFUEL, AND RECONNECT and heard the message loud and clear that parents are looking for a conference JUST for them.  You can get training hours- and we love to provide training hours!!!- on parenting a child who has experienced attachment trauma, or any kiddo who has difficulty with relationships and regulation.  But this conference is special- this conference doesn’t focus on what to do to help your kiddo- this conference focuses on what to do to help YOU.  And not only will you get the “what to do” but you’ll have the opportunity to begin to feel and experience it.  BONUS- you’ll be in a room full of parents who totally get it.



Compassion fatigue and caregiver burnout may be all too familiar on your journey of parenting a child with difficult behaviors.  Over the months and years, the ongoing trauma of parenting may have you feeling as though you have little left to give.  How would you like to spend a day with    other parents who share a similar path and are ready to turn some of those caregiver superpowers on themselves?  Please join Central Texas Attachment & Trauma Center (CTATC) for our second   annual conference-EMPOWER, EMBRACE, EMERGE, a Nourishing Conference for Parents and Caregivers.  This soul-enriching day will draw from the latest research and innovation in the fields of neuroscience, mindfulness, and self-compassion to help attendees EMPOWER their mind, body, and soul, EMBRACE themselves (and their child), and EMERGE as a parent more amazing than you ever imagined.


EMPOWER, EMBRACE, EMERGE will be hands-on and interactive, combining learning with experiencing and providing real-world application that you will be able to feel and do in the moment.   You can look forward to meeting new people, hearing others’ stories and experiences, and having the opportunity to share your own.  This will be a day of listening AND doing so come ready to connect with other parents who share a similar parenting journey.  Topics will include self-compassion, radical acceptance, mindfulness, and the power of stories.

When: April 17, 2015; 9am to 3:30pm

    Hi Robyn, I enjoyed the conference last year and am so glad to see the focus is on compassion fatigue. I found that what has helped our family the most, on our now eleven year journey (Feb 14th) is taking care of ourselves. I can’t tell you how much neurofeedback has helped us get back to our dreams and who we were “before” the trauma. It has been such a wonderful tool that we actually broke the bank and bought a machine. I have started practicing but will not certified until April. It will take me a while to get everything up and running. Right now I am just taking friends. But please let all these wonderful parents know there is hope and with new technology it is affordable and available to everyone. The best way is to do the entire family and now it is very doable. With this type of neurofeedback Neuroptimal all you have to do is sit and listen to music for 35 mins. and relax the machine does all of the work. It is really something I look forward to now. It is not a magic pill but another great tool to add to counseling.

    Good luck at your conference. I am hopeful that I will be in school starting this summer. I just finished my application essay and resume. I couldn’t have even imagined having the energy to do this a year ago! Thank you for everything, Regan
