#20220913 WEBINAR: Defiance & Disrespect: Battles with Homework and Chores




(September 2022) A look at parenting through defiance and disrespect from a trauma informed lens. Participants will be able to consider a new perspective and gain tools to address their child’s defiance and disrespectful behaviors. The focus will be on chores and homework, however other issues will work their way into the seminar.

Brenda Benning received her Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Minnesota and has trained with Heather Forbes, founder of the Beyond Consequences Inc. She works with families individually in home and in group settings; in person and virtually. Since her primary focus is adoptive families with children healing from trauma histories and attachment issues, Brenda is working with families in the preplacement stages of adoption, helping parents prepare to parent kids from tough backgrounds. Brenda and her husband are parenting ten children, nine through adoption; multiple with diagnosed trauma histories and attachment issues. Brenda and her family recently relocated to Maryland and now retains counseling licenses in both Minnesota and Maryland. They are also working on becoming foster parents in Maryland at this time. By using techniques from both “Beyond Consequences” and her own book “Restoring the Hope, Empathy and Love in Adoptive Families”, she has been able to assist families and her own children in their healing journey.
