Understanding complex trauma in children

Overview

This one-day workshop will provide you with essential knowledge and skills for working with children who have experienced complex trauma, maltreatment, or are in foster care.

Join Dr Wendy Kelly, Clinical Psychologist, to explore and understand complex trauma. Wendy will step you through  case studies, assessment considerations, therapeutic techniques and a relational learning framework she has developed, which enables you to  work through the impact of maltreatment, or other trauma, using the child’s view of themselves and others. This framework will help you to work out what corrective experiences a child needs from current relationships, which then become the basis of a treatment plan to help the child heal.  

This workshop will cover

  • Therapeutic approaches and the general principles of therapy
  • Assessment challenges and how to set up therapy  
  • Engaging with the child and the use of drawing and play
  • Stages of therapy
  • Working with parents and/or whānau
  • Common therapeutic strategies in practice

Learning outcomes

  • Understand trauma responses, including post-traumatic stress disorder and developmental trauma disorder, and how to recognise trauma symptoms
  • Learn how to use the relational learning framework to develop effective treatment plans and provide support for children with complex trauma
  • Understand how to work therapeutically with children with complex trauma
