Keeping the Brain in Mind
This training looks at the connection between dysfunctional early life experiences and problematic behaviour by examining what we know about the neurological impact of early trauma and insecure attachment relationships on children and adolescents. We will present a treatment approach which seeks to integrate the brain and body based research on trauma and attachment and our understanding of "healthy" childhood developmental progress rather than those that "solely" look to find a means for stopping negative behaviour. Age range: 6-21 years.
Interested in advancing the evidence-base in the field? Members can register their interest as a practitioner research participant. You will be contacted about research opportunities relevant to your role and expertise and we can ensure that researchers are well informed by the practitioners in the field.
