Childhood Trauma: Finding a Way Through

Has your child or a child you are supporting experienced physical or sexual abuse? Exposed to the foster care system? Suffered through a tragic event? Experienced neglect? Witnessed or experienced violence? Endured extreme bullying? Or been impacted by a high-conflict divorce?

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.

This course aims to offer practical information to caregivers and professionals on why certain behaviours may be present, and how they can support their children in moving towards growth and healing.


  • Examine the impact of trauma on neurological development
  • Explore the impact of trauma on attachment systems and relational patterns
  • Foster a greater understanding of behavioural patterns commonly associated with traumatic experiences.
  • Develop tools and strategies to support the children in
  • Learn about appropriate treatment options available based on the type of trauma a child has experienced and the timing of the incident
  • Highlight the importance of self-care for those who are supporting children that have experiences of trauma
