Working With The Traumatised Child
1 day (5 hrs) with Betsy de Thierry
It is recognised that ‘trauma is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering’ (Levine & Kline, 2007). Yet there is now evidence that shows us that unprocessed trauma can lead to increased mental health difficulties during adulthood and a host of social problems, such as drug use, school failure, anti- social behaviour etc. It can also lead to other problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), conduct disorders, and dissociative disorders, and unprocessed trauma can also lead to medical challenges, such as asthma and heart disease (Perry & Szalavitz, 2011). When trauma is processed in the context of a warm and genuine relationship, the impact is minimalized if not altogether transformed into greater resilience, thus changing the impact on the child and their future.
The training will aim to achieve the following outcomes
- Understand the definition of trauma & assessment of trauma.
- Understand the short and long term impact of trauma
- Understand and be able to identify trauma symptoms
- Understand the triune brain and how trauma impacts behaviour
- Understand the important approach that facilitates trauma recovery
The training will be delivered by Betsy de Thierry, who is the Director of BdT Ltd, Therapeutic Mentoring Rooms and the Trauma Recovery Centre, UK
