Some questions have been posed about the content of the workshop,
Designing Trauma Informed Services for Children and Families
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.
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.
The registration deadline has been increased by one day to compensate for the phone issues experienced on February 13th and 14th.
