“My client has experienced multiple traumas, where do I start?” “My client is too anxious to come in. What’s the plan?” “When the client has learning disabilities and ADHD, how do we do exposures?” If you are struggling issues like these, then this workshop might be the answer for you.

An explosion of trauma-focused research over the past two decades has contributed to a rich and dynamic knowledge base. The current challenge for both novice and experienced clinicians is knowing what to address first and how to intervene when faced with increasingly complex cases involving multiple services.

Developed for clinicians in a variety of settings, this course provides clinical consultation within a framework that is culturally sensitive and evidence-informed. Through case-based learning, participants will apply evidence-based trauma models and established and emerging techniques with real cases that address client’s emotion dysregulation, attention, substance use and behaviour, etc. in the context of the family and community. Participants will engage in discussion and receive practical feedback to build capacity to match interventions to the client diagnosis, presenting problem, age & developmental stage, family and community context.

Participants are encouraged to bring a case for discussion – example cases should contain only non-identifying information.

This course is recommended for clinicians treating various types of complex trauma in addition to concurrent, mood, anxiety, attention, substance use and acting out behaviours working with children (2-12 years), adolescents (12-18 years) and families in outpatient, inpatient/residential, in-home or crisis intervention programs.

Outcomes/Objectifs d'apprentissage

Through case-based learning, participants will be able to:
• Perform a thorough assessment of trauma and concurrent issues taking into consideration extensive knowledge of the individual, their family, and cultural context.
• Identify evidence-informed interventions and treatment which are effective and appropriate for the trauma type, concurrent mental health issues, and the client’s family and culture.
• Develop a viable treatment plan with input from the client and family and evaluate progress toward goals.
