This 3 hour workshop will explore the impact of trauma on children. We will be looking into key concepts such as the impact of trauma on attachment and development, as well as some implications of intergenerational trauma and the importance of systemic thinking. These will be discussed within a trauma recovery and attachment framework to aid children in the healing process. Participants will be able to identify behaviours in children which may indicate a trauma history, as well as understand how to confidently foster a safe and supportive environment for the child and the family.
This workshop is relevant to people working with children from refugee backgrounds or for those interested in working with them in different settings including case workers, counsellors, mental health professionals and EALD and other teachers.
