Blocked Care: What to do When You Run Out of Compassion with Lisa Qualls and Melissa Corkum
Is there a wall growing between you and your child and does your heart feel trampled? When our children experience early adversity, it activates a premature defense mechanism that may put them in a chronic state of survival. This results in something called blocked trust. As a result, some children do not respond to efforts of caregiving. You may begin to feel ineffective and experience a sense of apathy called blocked care. In this session you will: 

  • Learn the brain science to understand your feelings and make powerful changes.
  • Gain the motivation and endurance to pursue a relationship with your child.
  • Overcome feelings of shame and guilt.
  • Learn step-by-step practices you need to reclaim the parent you know you can be.

*Professional CEU's will be offered for an additional charge. Please indicate on provided checkbox at the end of this form.


  • Includes: LIVE (virtual) General Session, Friday, February 19 at 7pm. Plus, access to more than 30 on-demand breakouts and scheduled on-line connections. One registration per household (up to 2 attendees). Please note, you must register both attendee's to receive your training certificate.

  • Friday, February 19 | 1-3pm
