Why Choose FIFPA Training?
The neurology of emotions and behaviors and attachment theory describe why Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have such a profound and long lasting impact on how a person functions across his or her life span. The brain and nervous system are altered, and a person begins to see the world differently during and after periods of prolonged or toxic stress. This understanding is the framework on which Forged in Fire programs are structured to achieve the most substantial and sustained changes in day-to-day functioning for youth. Our programs are strengths based, relationship centered, and mitigate the impact of stress and adversity on the brain and the body. We comprehensively address the impact of toxic stress by working with the youth, parents, and educators with a consistent message and strategies that will surround the youth in healing environments.
