Facilitated by Karen Carey and Colin Morrison
Children who have experienced violence, abuse, and neglect, not having their needs met, and prolonged separation from their caregivers are at risk for developing impairment in their ability to develop healthy emotional attachments to others. Research tells us that all disorders or impairments of attachment are both serious and harmful and can have life long significant impact, because they impede the child’s emotional health and ability to have meaningful relationships into their adult lives.
This workshop will allow participants to:
-gain a better understanding of attachment theory, complex trauma and traumatic stress, and resiliency as it applies to a child’s developing brain and body;
-identify needs and effective approaches to working with children and families who experience impairments in attachment and complex trauma;
-Increase our understanding of how to promote resiliency and foster trauma informed practices in our workplaces and as part of our professional development
