Event Details



The effects of childhood trauma can be devastating and recovery a complex process requiring knowledge of the biological, brain-altering results of emotional and physical trauma.

Dr. Perry is internationally renown for his Neurosequential Model (NMT), a developmentally sensitive, neurobiologically informed approach to trauma. He is an educator and practitioner on issues of child trauma and a founding member of the Premier's Council of Alberta's Promise. Dr. Perry is the co-author with Maia Szalavitz of two definitive books: "The Boy Who was Raised as a Dog" and "Born for Love: Why Empathy is Essential and Endangered."    
This hands-on workshop with a leading expert will enable you to recognize trauma and direct therapy for kids who need help. As educators and health care professionals in the prevention, early intervention and child intervention community, you'll grow your understanding and skills and enhance your ability to improve lives threatened by, or suffering from childhood trauma.

Some questions have been posed about the content of the workshop,


Workshop Title:
Designing Trauma Informed Services for Children and Families
Workshop Objectives:
1. Understand the effects of trauma and neglect from a neurodevelopmental perspective.
2. Identify signs and symptoms of trauma and neglect in young children.  
3. Learn new strategies for care, program development, and policy as related to developmental trauma.
Workshop Description:
The development of a young child is profoundly influenced by experience.  Experiences – good and bad - shape the organization of the brain. The ultimate effect is to impact emotional, social, cognitive and physiological functioning.  Insights into this process come from understanding brain development. Both trauma and neglect, the absence of essential developmental experiences required to express a fundamental potential of a child, are pervasive problems in our culture. Various forms of neglect are possible and include splinter neglect, total global neglect and emotional or relational neglect.  Chaos, threat and abnormal patterns of emotional, social, cognitive and physical interactions with young children lead to an array of brain-related problems. This presentation will review clinical work and research that can help us better understand developmental trauma, neglect and the relational problems that arise from neglect and threat.  An overview will be provided that suggests new directions for clinical practice, program development and policy.
