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 course 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.
