Many adopted, fostered and other permanently placed children have suffered chronic, interpersonal and trauma in the first years of their lives. The concept of ‘complex trauma in children’ helps to understand the overall presentation of these children: their capacity for Attachment, Self-regulation and age appropriate Competencies are more often than not affected by their early life traumas.
The concept of 'complex trauma in children', also called 'developmental trauma', will be presented in a way that allows translation into practice, both with regard to assessments and interventions for these children and their families.
The training will include handouts, illustrative video clips, practical exercises in small groups and time to process and exchange with fellow course attenders.
