Establishing Safe Connections: Helping Children Who Have Experienced Trauma and Loss * 1 Day Workshop*

Betty J.B. Brouwer
presented by Therapy Talks in Creemore, Ontario

This workshop introduces basic theory and understanding of brain development and the principles of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP). DDP helps parents understand the vulnerability beneath their child’s difficult behaviour and provides tools to help parents respond in ways that co-regulate their child and help them make sense of their experiences. This then helps the child to feel understood and accepted and more open to new experiences in relationships.The principles of DDP will guide case examples for the purposes of learning how an adult can support a child who cannot trust relationships.

Participants will:

Understand how toxic levels of stress impacts on brain development.
Understand insecure and disorganized attachment patterns and the relevance for ongoing development
Understand the vulnerability behind challenging behaviour and how that behaviour might be adaptive.
Learn how to use Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy (P.A.C.E.) to help a child regulate their emotions, make sense of their world in less shame-based ways and to learn how to trust relationships.
This one-day workshop is relevant for those parenting and caring for children with attachment and trauma histories. It is also relevant for counselors, therapists, teachers, educational assistants, youth care staff, social service and mental health care providers working with children and their families.
