BUILD (June 7, 2021)

Creating a Foundation of Connection


BUILD is an interactive learning experience for parents who want to create a foundation of connection between them and their children. This training was developed as a resource for people raising children with trauma histories.

This course was developed by Ryan and Kayla North and was influenced by the work of some of the most respected voices in the fields of Developmental Trauma and Attachment including; Dr. Karyn Purvis, Dr. Bruce Perry, Dr. Curt Thompson, Dr. Tina Payne-Bryson, Dr. Dan Siegel, and Jayne Schooler.

Every person has a great capacity to heal and grow, while at the same time having the capacity to be a healer.


"I thought the course was excellent. I appreciated the hands-on application throughout the week. I’m excited for our coaching session!"- Jenni, Foster/Adoptive mom

"I have loved this class. It’s so helpful to be reminded of the why behind the behavior. Also to remember we aren’t alone in raising kids with trauma." - Chris, Adoptive dad

"This course offers such invaluable information at such an affordable price! I’m stunned that the cost isn’t 10x more." - Juli, Adoptive mom
