This workshop will provide a background on current understandings of how trauma impacts children and families, and how we can best work with them to identify myriad traumatic responses and encourage healing in the family system. The workshop is designed for child and youth workers, nurses, early childhood educators, child protection workers, and other social service counsellors who provide counselling and support to children and adolescents in community-based setting.

Learning objectives

  1. Recognise the effects of trauma in children and adolescents
  2. Understand the many manifestations of complex developmental trauma and how to incorporate this understanding into front-line work with clients
  3. Develop strategies to assist in the stabilization and support of youth with traumatic histories
