About the Course:
Childhood trauma has the potential to overwhelm the coping ability of children and can create developmental changes in brain structure and function. These changes to the developing mind allow for short term survival and sacrifice long term effective functioning. Adolescence is a time when these changes have the potential for both becoming more deeply embedded or largely rectified as the person moves toward adulthood. This workshop will detail some aspects of how the brain copes with overwhelming trauma and impairment or disorganized attachment and how, when identified and treated effectively, the changes in the brain can facilitate healing. Specific case examples will be provided from various causes of C-PTSD and dissociative responses and some basic methods of addressing these changes in order to facilitate more effective functioning will be provided.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, Trauma and the Developing Adolescent Brain created by Robert Slater, BS, MSW, LCSW-R in 2018.
