The needs of children and adolescents in residential placements and foster families are different from the needs of other of children and adolescents — they require an informed approach which is often counter-intuitive to what has been understood as “good” care in most situations.
Children with complex trauma disorders, dissociation and/or attachment difficulties can be difficult and volatile in placement settings. Making use of the most recent knowledge, research and theories in developmental traumatology, this workshop will introduce participants to a treatment model that better addresses the needs of children and youth with “complex trauma disorders” or “developmental trauma disorders.”
Challenging behaviour as an adaptive coping response to trauma is difficult to identify without training, and does not resolve organically during non-specific trauma treatment. Managing these complex needs and presentations leads to a high degree of conflict and instability within treatment systems. The result may be broken down placements, school expulsions, or assaults on staff and peers. Participants will learn specific techniques for managing these challenging and high risk clients to builds supportive relationships and engagement.
Who Should Attend: This workshop will be of interest to those supporting children and youth in out-of-home care with complex trauma disorders including family foster care, kinship care, treatment foster care, and residential and group care.
• Describe the impact of trauma, complex trauma and attachment on self and worldview.
• Use specific strategies and techniques to support, care for and stabilise these young people.
• Identify factors that lead to instability in treatment systems when dealing with children with complex needs
