Trauma does not discriminate. It affects children of all ages and developmental levels. Please join us for a day full of trauma-focused interventions for children of all ages, at all levels of healing, in a variety of environments (even those with few adult supports) and of diverse developmental ability. We will break each intervention down for differing age groups and developmental levels, describe ways to introduce them, support the child as they work the intervention and prepare the child and their caregiver for what may follow after session. The interpersonal, psychosocial, emotional and neurobiological healing aspects of each intervention will be identified. Ways of assessing areas of most need and interventions for those needs will be presented. Bring your most and least favorite techniques, so we can explore and refine them to add to the repertoire we will develop for each participant to take with them.
