    Training Overview

    This two day training offers an abundance of learning on the impact of trauma, neglect, toxic stress, and disrupted attachment on children and adolescents, and on their surrounding adults.

    This training will also focus on hope, resilience and strengths-based learning. Through the use of video clips, experiential learning and case studies practitioners will have an opportunity to engage dynamically in thinking about concepts. Dr Treisman draws on the latest evidence base and neuroscience findings, delivering them in an accessible, engaging and applicable way.

    This training draws on the attachment, loss, stress and trauma theory base, children in care case work and practice methods. Once theory and context has been discussed, Day two will consider a range of creative and expressive techniques and tools for us in practice.

    Taken from Dr Treisman’s ‘Therapeutic Treasure Box for Working with Developmental Trauma’, Day two will focus on a range of areas including rapport building, feelings, safety, strengths. This creative and multi-faceted workshop will explore some of the therapeutic qualities required to support children, adolescents, and adults who have and are experiencing relational and developmental trauma.
