Translating Neurobiology for Clinical Practice in the Treatment of Complex Trauma

Facilitator: Geraldine Crisci, MSW
presented by SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health Learning Institute

This Training is Suitable for: Mental health professionals: psychotherapists, counselors, psychologists, and social workers.

Description: Achievements in the science of neurobiology over the past decade hold profound implications for the treatment of complex trauma, and how these advances in brain research relate to behavioural presentation. The workshop will outline the understanding of functional developmental level results in more appropriate and attainable goals for behavioural change and response, identify the barriers to growth and development for severely neglected children, and present how chaos and unpredictability in early care giving result in brain disorganization. The presenter will teach approaches to working with children who have been raised in chaotic, unpredictable and violent homes. Participants will leave with the four building blocks of functionality based on early caregiving, and understand the importance and application of developmental assessment in treatment planning.

Achievements in the science of neurobiology over the past decade hold profound implications for the treatment of complex trauma. Breakthroughs have also assisted in the understanding of why some kids get "stuck"; leaving caregivers and therapists frustrated and perplexed as to "where to go from here?" Changes in the lens through which we view children, the expectations we have of their behaviour, and the approach we use, all allow for effective, growth-producing intervention. The veil of mystery regarding "what works and why" is lifted. While many practitioners have been exposed to the language, few have had opportunity to think through and learn the specific strategies which result in change for children. This one day workshop will outline:

• How an understanding of functional developmental level results in more appropriate and attainable goals for behavioural change and response.
• The barriers to growth and development for severely neglected children.
• How chaos and unpredictability in early care giving result in brain disorganization.

The presenter will teach approaches to working with children who have been raised in chaotic, unpredictable and violent homes. Issues to be explored and addressed:

• Affect regulation or anger management?
• Aggression or intense manifestation of anxiety?
• Attention seeking or connection/attachment seeking?
• Rewarding bad behaviour or recognizing developmental need?

Participants will learn:

1. The four building blocks of functionality based on early caregiving
2. The importance and application of developmental assessment in treatment planning
3. Advances in brain research as they relate to behavioural presentation
