Creating Safe Spaces for Children from Hard Places: Understanding Complex Developmental Trauma
Description of Workshop
Individuals who have experienced complex developmental trauma have brains that have developed differently. It is critically important that those who care for these children (and adults!) have a thorough understanding of how to interpret behaviors and use evidenced-based interventions that not only reduce negative or unwanted behaviors, but rewire the brain in healthy ways. This presentation uses humor, research, and real-life examples of how Trust-Based Relational Interventions (developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis) can bring hope and healing to children from hard places.
Understand 6 types of developmental trauma and how it fundamentally effects a person’s neurological development
Understand why traditional interventions don’t work for persons who have experienced developmental trauma
Learn practical intervention strategies that heal the brain and increase positive behaviors, while reducing problem behaviors
