RES 04_24_2014 FeatureAbout Dr. Christina Lasich
Dr. Christina Lasich, M.D. began her medical career after graduating from the University of California, Davis School of Medicine with honors. Her interests in orthopedics and physical therapy lead her to the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This specialty field serves those with chronic conditions with an emphasis on improving quality of life and independence. After leaving residency training, she returned to her hometown of Grass Valley, CA to open her practice in 2001. She quickly found an underserved population of people with chronic pain, especially women in pain. Her life, her practice, and her book – High Heels To Hormones – all reflect a philosophy that pain is a signal for the individual to improve habits, life-style, and nutrition. She views pain as the ultimate motivator and that pain is also a doorway to transformation.

CoRR has a child development program that serves the children of families enrolled in programs at the new CoRR Campus in Nevada County as well as the Mothers in Recovery program in Placer County. The child development centers help to stabilize programs provide a safe nurturing program for children of all ages, although most of our young guests are 0-5.  Parents report that they feel good about leaving their children in our care and it really helps parents to focus on their programs. We strive to create a team approach where parents feel valued and heard. Our qualified staff have been trained in a non-violence approach to working with children that creates strong trusting relationships. It is evident that children love it here, even just watching them run down the hallway to “their classroom” and eagerly bang on the door!

Over the last six months, we have served nearly 100 children through these two programs. Each child that is in our programs has a developmental survey done and staff work with parents to develop an education plan that addresses, social emotional skills, large and small motor skills, friendship and coping skills to help parents learn more about what strategies work best for their children and to help children feel good about themselves. We know that if we can provide this kind of support children’s learning will develop naturally and parents will see less negative behaviors. Parents tell us that they are so thankful for the program and they hope they can find a program.

Staff complete a social emotional assessment with each child to gauge their development, and provide an opportunity to teach parents about child development; celebrating children’s accomplishments, and identify any areas where more support might be necessary.  A  parent conference is held to go over an Action Plan that is designed to help parents develop strategies to support moving their child to the next developmental milestone.  Examples from our ASQ findings that benefitted from support and strategies included:

1-      Child Parentification – Children were encouraged by caregiver/parent to create an environment that fit their individual needs, followed by role-play that allowed the child to let-go and be a child.

2-      Separation Anxiety –   Parent would come in early to settle child in, and once they left, they did not come back to “check” on child thereby disrupting the child’s ability to feel safe with caregiver. Caregiver maintains boundaries with parent and child to help ensure that the child feels safe.  This is all done with lots of patience, love, listening and validating emotions for both parent and child.

3-      Language Development – Replacing inappropriate behaviors, validating emotions, encouraging appropriate words that can be heard and needs addressed.

4-      Coping Skills – Intentional environment, gentle touch to get an adults attention, active listening, calm-down space, validate emotions through love and compassion.

When we couple our child development program with parenting classes, parent empowerment groups, and life skill classes, the whole family can be successful. Through the child development program, families can get more support through the social worker to create a plan to help them find work, housing, food and quality child development programs. Our current project is to develop a peace garden where families can learn how to grow their own food and be one with nature. We are always looking for volunteers and community support to make our program one that feels like it’s own  little village!
