About this event
Trauma is "the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering" (Levine & Kline, 2007).
Unprocessed trauma can negatively impact the mental and physical wellbeing and social development of a child – even during adulthood. When trauma is processed in the context of a warm and genuine relationship, it can be minimised or transformed into greater resilience, thus changing the impact on the child and their future.
This seminar will help you understand trauma and its short - and long-term impact on a child’s development.
- Considering the role of resilience and attachment in the impact of trauma and bereavement
- Identifying complex trauma responses which can often be misdiagnosed.
