Title:

Understanding the Impact of Relational and Developmental Trauma and Disrupted Attachment on Children’s Brains, Bodies, Emotions, Relationships, and Behaviours.

Summary:

This 2-day training package offers an abundance of learnings around the multi-layered impact of trauma, neglect, toxic stress, and disrupted attachment on children, adolescents, and on their surrounding adults. It Includes the impact of trauma and disrupted attachment on the body (physical and sensory), brain (cognitive and neuropsychological), emotions, behaviours, learning, and relationships.

This workshop will also have a spotlight on the important of language, words, and how we story people in our written and verbal communications. Although the content of this workshop can be emotive and potentially triggering; there will also be an emphasis on hope, resilience, and survivorship. These days use a range of metaphors, props, video clips, experiential learning, and case studies to bring the contents alive.

This workshop also draws on the latest evidence-base and neuroscience findings but delivers them in an accessible engaging and applicable way. This training draws on the attachment, loss, stress, and trauma theory base, however with a focus of translating the findings into day-to-day child protection and children in care case work and practical tips.

Self-care reminder:

Please note this workshop does discuss potentially emotive and triggering material around domestic violence, neglect, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and emotional abuse- so please be mindful of your own wellbeing.

Outline of The Day:

Explore what is meant by the terms relational and developmental trauma?

Provide a rational and framework for relationship-based trauma-informed practice.

Consider and reflect on some of the trauma and loss experiences which many of these children have faced and still face.

Learn about why children’s social and emotional age may be different to their chronological age.

Consider some of the multi-layered impact that these experiences have on children’s brains, bodies, relationships, behaviours, and emotions. Including on areas such as emotional-regulation, sensory processing, and impulse control.

Reflect on key elements such as “behaviour as communication” and identifying children and our own multi-layered triggers.

Reflect and explore some of the power around language and words.

Reflect on some of the wider impact of trauma on the surrounding systems such as the family, school, and organisations.

Consider some of the literature and examples around resilience, hope, and strengths-based practice.

Learning Methods:

The days will utilise an array of learning and teaching styles including small group discussions, experiential hands-on learning, multimedia methods, and lecture delivery. Case studies and live examples will be interwoven throughout.

Additional learning resources, and recommended reading will be provided.
