Event description

Description

This year, RYDON are changing up our usual offering of a two day conference. In response to our sector feedback we are road-testing a new 'masterclass' format.

In 2017 we will be hosting the Australian Childhood Foundation as they present a seminar on the topic of "Understanding the Neurobiology of Complex Trauma: Building a framework for effective practice in the protection, education, placement and support of Children and Young People".

This one day seminar explores the most recent research on the impact of abuse related trauma on brain/body development and provides a framework for understanding the consequences of abuse. The seminar goes on to explore implications for trauma informed practice. Participants will explore specific and practical strategies for promoting recovery for children and young people who have experienced relationally based trauma.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop an understanding of brain/body development through childhood and adolescence.

  • Understand the way that trauma impacts children and adolescents in a range of ways.

  • Identify ways that trauma shapes children’s states and experiences.

  • Develop creative approaches to enable children to communicate and process their experiences of trauma.

  • Identify evidence based practice strategies for working with children who have experienced trauma and their families.

  • Build an approach that resources change across all areas of the child’s world.
