Building New Pathways for Professionals
Webinar Series

Practical Strategies to Support Children who have experienced Developmental Trauma

This SERIES is designed for Professionals who need to support children and adolescents who have experienced early developmental trauma. Typically running over 3 weeks, these two-hour sessions will explore trauma and brain development, practical strategies for complex behaviours, and relationship-based strategies for improving connections with children, including:

  • Understanding the impact of trauma on brain development and “Building New Pathways” – nervous system repair strategies based on the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT – Bruce Perry);
  • Explore the common behaviours that we might see as a result of compromised brain development;
  • Develop a new understanding of a child’s behaviour through The Window of Tolerance and the trauma lens for trauma-based symptoms and explore practical strategies to be used to prevent challenging behaviour;
  • Trauma-informed response strategies for common difficulties and behaviours such as anxiety, defiance, emotional outbursts, hyperactivity, sleep problems and aggressive behaviour.
  • How to develop therapeutic relationships with children and adolescents who have experienced early attachment ruptures;
  • Strategies to create safe and therapeutic environments for traumatised children and adolescents.

Time will be available throughout the series for questions.
