The Connection of Trauma and Attachment in a Baby's Brain

November 21, 2019

Webinar

Event Trainers
Tessa Chesher, DO

The first years of development are an amazing time in which a baby’s brain is growing quicker than any other time in life. Traumatic events can have a large impact on this growth, making it difficult to care for a baby affected by trauma. Join us to learn how a baby’s brain grows and is changed in traumatic environments, as well as how trauma affects the whole body. Dr. Tessa Chesher will discuss how attachment is affected by trauma and how powerful responsive relationships are to a baby healing from trauma.

Parents in attendance will earn 1 hour of in-service training credit toward their annual 12-hour requirement.
