Hope House presents a two-part class on child treatment issues — mental health approaches as well as caregiver style ­— from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 22 and 29 at the Guy Boyington Building, 857 Commercial St. The class covers current research and practice in the field of child therapy, including information and protocols for working with child trauma and issues of attachment.

The presenter for this interactive workshop is Liz Covey, a trauma and attachment specialist and a licensed counselor at Hope House who specializes in the treatment of trauma in adults and children.

This class is open to the public, and is targeted for people who work with children and parents, as well as parents themselves, and anyone else who is interested in learning and discussing issues of child development, psychology, trauma and up-to-date research in these areas.

There is a suggested donation of $10 per class, but no fee is required for attendance. No childcare is available for this event.

For questions, or to register (which is not required), call Hope House at 503-325-6754.
