Inspired by the findings of cutting edge trauma research, this training offers participants an opportunity to re-frame the behaviour of troubled children so that we can understand their needs through the lens of Developmental Trauma. Developmental Trauma is a set of complex difficulties affecting a child’s sensory systems, dissociative responses, attachment, capacity for regulation, identity and cognitive abilities.

Understanding how to identify Developmental Trauma, how to engage dysregulated children, and developing a trauma-informed support plan will enable participants to experience a renewed sense of hopefulness and efficacy in creating change for traumatised children.
