In this episode, you will join Tonya Hotchkin LMFT, RPT, CTRP-C, the creator of the RISE: Wellness and Resilience Framework™, and Cassie Kehoe LISW, Clinician Supervisor the Tanager Place School Based Therapy Program as they discuss the topic of creating Safety.

“Safety is not just the idea of keeping a child physically safe from harm, but also doing so psychologically and physiologically. As parents, we establish this by providing a sense of predictability and consistency. But, it’s not just about creating safety through our actions, it’s also helping children identify safe people in their lives and where they can go to feel safe and supported”

– Cassie Kehoe, LISW
