Event Description

Young clients with complex trauma histories often display a myriad of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. Additionally, trauma manifests in affect dysregulation and habitual responses that are best accessed through body-based and creative approaches. Clinicians and therapists working with children and youth will explore strategies that offer body-based and creative interventions with an opportunity for hands-on and reflective practice. In this experiential learning session, you will learn to recognize signs that a client might be outside the Window of Tolerance, and how/when to use non-verbal strategies that bypass the language centres of the brain to promote healing.

You will learn to:
-Describe key components of various body-based frameworks and creative approaches that facilitate the healing process
-Apply basic skills used in the somatic and expressive approaches including grounding, centering, containment and more
-Using case studies, identify creative interventions for working with traumatized youth and their caregivers
