About this event

This one-day workshop will begin with concepts and theories that will help to explore the impact of trauma on children, including the impact of intergeneration al trauma. It will include brief descriptions of key concepts such as child development, attachment, and emotional self-regulation. 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 foster a safe and supportive environment for the child and the family to aid recovery. This workshop will be experiential and full of practical approaches, with an opportunity to work through case studies, where skills learnt can be applied.

This workshop is relevant to people working with children from refugee backgrounds including case workers, counsellors, mental health professionals and EALD and other teachers.
