About our Speaker:
Linda Ikeda, RN, MFT has worked closely with Hep One Chid for nearly 20 years as a board member, education advisor, and therapist to many fost-adopt families in the ministry’s network. Her extensive expertise is in attachment and other early developmental traumas.
Created to Belong was originally designed to train pastors, lay leaders and caregivers in meeting the unique and complex needs of abandoned and traumatized children over a seven week teaching series. Through Created to Belong, caregivers are taught how to help repair damage done by difficult circumstances in a child’s life and restore the child’s ability to bond with both God and other people. In conjunction with Empower International Ministries, Created to Belong also offers preventative services, teaching parents how to create loving families in which to nurture emotionally healthy children.
100% of any donations received from this presentation will be given to Empower International to further Linda’s work in developing countries where she travels each summer to “train the trainers.”
