Course overview:

Trauma in childhood has a significant impact on the developing brain and can lock itself down in the body. Children show us this in their behaviour and their relationships with others. This workshop explores: the most recent research on the impact of trauma on the brain development of children and young people; provides a framework for understanding the effects of trauma for a child’s cognitive, social, physical and emotional development and functioning and; explores implications for practice. This is a practical workshop utilising experiential activities and case studies.

Learning outcomes:

Participants will:

  •  Develop an understanding of normative brain development through childhood and adolescence
  •  Understand the way that trauma affects children’s brain architecture and functioning and can lock itself down in the body

  •  Explore non verbal, creative, playful and sensorimotor approaches to enable children to communicate and process their experiences of trauma
  •  Explore practical strategies to strengthen parent’s, caregivers and others to understand the world of the child or young person who has experienced trauma

  •  Have fun!
