Early onset, multiple trauma exposure disrupts a child’s secure worldview, heightens preoccupations with danger and safety and disrupts emotional, social, cognitive and physical development. This workshop will cover the neurobiology of trauma, and its contribution to a hyperaroused or dissociative adaptation that leads to problematic behavioral responses and misdiagnosis. The importance of early recognition and treatment will be stressed, as well as complex trauma’s contribution to major social problems and serious adult psychopathology.

 

At the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand Complex Trauma in Childhood
  • Recognize complex trauma’s disruption of major developmental domains
  • Understand its relevance for working with difficult adult clients
  • Learn to attend to secondary traumatic stress and self-care
