Childhood trauma is the way in which a victim’s body, mind, and emotions respond to a traumatic event when it occurred in childhood. The ramifications of this response are evident throughout the victim’s lifetime. Understanding the root of this response within the body and brain of the victim enables us to understand the emotions, behaviors, and capabilities of the individual at whatever age we encounter them.
Participants will be able to:
- Understand the lifetime effect of lack of nurturing in the first two years of life.
- Discuss how trauma in the environment can impact the development of the victim’s brain.
- Recognize the implications of intergenerational trauma.
This webinar is part of a three-part series:
- Feb 6: Causes and Conditions of Childhood Trauma (this webinar)
- March 5: Assessing Childhood Trauma
- May 5: Working with Childhood Trauma
