Childhood Trauma: Finding a Way Through (Annual Conference)

USD $65.20

Trauma can significantly impact a child, and those caring for them are often left with questions about how to best help. Children with trauma can present significant challenges. They often display patterns of behaviour that can strain the relationship between the child and those caring for them. During this seminar we will explore the impact of trauma on neurological development and how this presents in children’s behaviours. The impact on the attachment system will also be examined, as will the role of relationship in healing and growth. Strategies to support children following experiences of trauma will be presented, giving attendees concrete ways in which they can support the children in their lives and care for themselves.

1 review for Childhood Trauma: Finding a Way Through (Annual Conference)

  1. Nicky Khan

    This course explained to me, in a literal sense, what trauma is; therefore, I can connect with others from a less emotional stance when discussing it. When talking to people with trauma, often fewer words are better
