'This is Me Now - Re-Opening the Door to Parenting' is a short film showing the basics for parenting past the cycle of trauma. All parents want to do the best for our children, but often we find ourselves reacting in ways we wish we hadn't... reacting like how others had parented us when we were young instead. Find out why the brain causes these reactions, how trauma affects this, and ways we can shift our behaviour so we can be there for our children and teenagers even when they make us upset. This film was made in collaboration with the Nuxalk Nation. Click here to find out more.
