Trainers: Dr Shoshanah Lyons, Clinical Director & Clinical Psychologist

  • Price: £180.00
  • No limit on places

Babies and children who survive multiple experiences of attachment disruption, trauma and separation face profound and complex difficulties, which are often described as ‘depression’, ‘anxiety’, ‘behavioural problems’ or ‘defiance’. As professionals trying to support traumatised children within school or within therapy, we often feel paralysed, de-skilled and hopeless when our usual approach is not effective.

Inspired by the findings of cutting edge trauma research and our clinical experience here at Beacon House, this online 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 set of complex difficulties affecting a child’s sensory systems, dissociative responses, attachment, capacity for regulation, identity and cognitive abilities. By understanding how to identify Developmental Trauma, how to develop a trauma-informed support plan and how to engage dysregulated children, participants will experience a renewed sense of hopefulness and efficacy in creating change for traumatised families.
