[FosterEd] Ways to Soothe and Comfort – Coaching Parents of Children Who Have Experienced Child Psychological Maltreatment

June 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Child Psychological Maltreatment (CPM) has come to greater awareness in the Child Protection field, as its impact is profound. Parent Coaching is proving itself to be highly effective in healing CPM’s effects. Using “Present Moment Parenting: The Guide to a Peaceful Life with Your Intense Child,” parents can learn ways to help children feel emotionally safe in ways they may never have felt. Join us for more information on this incredibly gratifying work, founded by the presenter, Tina Feigal.

Tina Feigal, M.S., Ed. is the Director of Family Engagement at Anu Family Services, living in Eagan, MN. A former school psychologist, Tina is the mother of three wonderful sons and equally fabulous daughters-in-law, and grandmother of 5 spunky grandchildren. Her passion is bringing peace to homes and schools, by helping adults to heal challenging child behavior with the specific, highly effective Present Moment Parenting. Watch Tina’s TEDx Talk: “How to Stop Kids’ Meltdowns and Gain their Cooperation” here.

Since 2000, Tina has operated her business, the Center for the Challenging Child, now a branch of Anu Family Services. As a parent coach and trainer of coaches, including 2009-2012 at Adler Graduate School and since 2012 at Anu Family Services, Tina supports adults in applying Present Moment Parenting techniques.

Tina’s books are Present Moment Parenting: The Guide to a Peaceful Life with Your Intense Child, winner of the 2017 Moms Choice Gold Award (available on Amazon and Audible) and e-book, Healing the Heart of Your Traumatized Child (available on Amazon.)
