Trauma has lifelong influence as it impacts the neurological wiring of the brain. While therapy is undoubtedly helpful, if that is the only form of healing offered, it is almost certain that a child or youth will continue to suffer. Healthy and safe relationships are the agent of change. Caregivers must be aware of how to target interventions in a manner that is attuned to the specific needs of the child or youth. Small, quick, and effective 'micro-doses' of intervention -- that is, multiple moments of healing through attuned, responsive, and nurturing interactions allows for neurological rewiring and healing to occur.

Pre-work: Participants will be asked to read a 3-page article, The Intimacy Barrier: The NMC Ten Tip Series by Dr. Bruce Perry. For participants needing accommodations, a 30-minute video can be provided in place of the article.


Registration for this event is now closed.
