Event Description

There have been a number of treatments developed and tested in recent years specifically geared to treating traumatized children. These approaches share many of the same core components, as listed below (The National Child Traumatic Stress Network, 2013):

Engaging clients
Conducting a systemic assessment
Providing psychoeducation
Addressing children and families’ traumatic stress reactions
Completing and processing a trauma narrative
Enhancing emotional regulation and anxiety management
Facilitating adaptive coping
Strengthening parenting skills and behaviour management
Enhancing safety skills
The effectiveness of trauma-treatment with children and adolescents is enhanced by integrating playful, developmentally appropriate interventions so children will engage in treatment. Playful therapeutic techniques motivate children and adolescents to participate in sessions, facilitate skill building, and lead to a greater sense of enjoyment in the therapeutic process.

Through PowerPoint presentation, activity demonstrations, videos of client sessions, and experiential exercises, this workshop will cover the following three components: Theoretical Overview, Assessment and Treatment. A brief theoretical overview will be presented to provide a context for the assessment and treatment interventions.
