Description

Presenter: Camea Peca PHD (C)

Trauma Treatment for Children: Calming the Dragon, Using the Body to Improve Care is an experiential training to gain working knowledge of interoception and body-based awareness and self-regulation. Learn how to use the body to increase effective trauma treatment.

Clinicians will learn about the bottom up, body based self-regulation and how trauma can affect different aspects of body function. Practitioners will learn how to understand trauma from a somatic and body-based perspective. Parallels will also be drawn between how body-based awareness relates to attachment and relationships. Practitioners will learn how parenting and clinical practice can be improved by greater body-based awareness and how these skills can be transferred to clients.

Participants will gain knowledge regarding current research, theories, empirically supported treatment modalities and techniques, assessments, that minimize resistance and increase effectiveness. Clinicians will also learn about the unique challenges with working with body-based trauma and development strategies specific to relational, sexual, physical and complex trauma.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be equipped to understand, identify, assess and develop interoceptive and body-based awareness in themselves and clients who have experienced trauma.
