Children raised by nurturing and stable caregivers develop healthy attachments and a secure sense of self. The brains of such infants also have the opportunity for optimal development.

Children raised in neglectful, abusive or unpredictable environments are at risk of developing attachment disorders and deficits in brain development. Such children present with oppositional, impulsive, aggressive and mistrustful behavior. They have poor affect regulation and an inability to trust and care for others, and are often very difficult to reach and to treat. These are the children who challenge and drain the resources of parents, caregivers and professionals.

Participants in this 2-day workshop will explore recent findings related to trauma, trauma assessment and models of treatment. On Day 1, you will learn about attachment theory and basic brain development, along with current research relating to Trauma Assessment.

Effective treatment planning is dependent on an assessment of the impact of the event, and takes into account how the event is experienced and the developmental context in which the experiences occur. One Day 2, you will learn how to utilize information gained in assessment and the developmental context to determine treatment needs.
