Adults Surviving Child Abuse presents: A one day workshop for health professionals working with Adult Survivors of Complex Trauma
This full day workshop is designed for diverse health personnel who work with adult survivors in various capacities. It addresses the nature and impacts of unresolved childhood trauma. Drawing on the insights of current research in the neurobiology of attachment, it provides the foundations for understanding the cumulative effects of overwhelming childhood stress on the brain and body. It also presents key principles of recovery-oriented practice which assist neural integration, and which facilitate the healing and resolution of early life trauma.
This workshop addresses four key areas:
- Childhood trauma = ‘complex’ trauma
- What is trauma & what are it’s effects?
- Why and what we need to know about the brain
- Implementing the insights
Material presented in the training will be comprehensive and will draw on the research based of the ASCA Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery.
