Helping Children Who Have Experienced Trauma & Loss
Mental Health Seminars for therapists in the Georgian Bay area and beyond
April 28, 2017 One day Seminar Creemore Ontario
Healthy relationships in the early years facilitate optimal brain integration and development and are correlated with mental health. However, when children experience abuse, neglect, or multiple caregivers, the high level of stress associated with these experiences changes the architecture of their brain and makes it difficult for them to establish relationships. In the absence of good enough relationships, children are at risk for neurological, cognitive, emotional and behavioural challenges that take them away from the pathway towards mental health.
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.
