Description

A child’s brain undergoes significant changes in the first few years of life
and is highly sensitive to their experiences and environment.
Neurodevelopmental research has shown that traumatic events that
occur in these first few years of life can have long-term impacts on
emotional, mental, social, and physiological functioning later in life. This
is especially likely if the events are severe, unpredictable, or persistent
(Perry, 1994).
This workshop will introduce the neurobiological effects of early
developmental trauma upon the brain and resultant behaviour. Methods
for effectively working with children and adults who have suffered from
ongoing, recent and past neurodevelopmental trauma will be discussed.
The goal of this workshop is to give counselors, therapists, social service
and mental health care providers an understanding of trauma from an
attachment perspective and to introduce effective interventions that
incorporate the body, the mind and the emotions. This information will be
of interest to anyone working with children, adolescents, adults and
families.
Day 1 will cover the necessary material needed for effective assessment
of both trauma and attachment, and how they intersect. The latter portion
of the day and the half day on the following day (Day 2) will focus on
treatment interventions directly related to and linked with assessment
findings.
