Through our Eyes- Children, Violence and Trauma

In this workshop we will look at the incidence, patterns, and occurrences of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Additionally, the workshop will review how PTSD negatively affects children in various developmental stages and the potential lifelong impact. Further, a discussion of grief versus trauma, complex PTSD and its relation to self-concept and later anxiety issues, neurological issues, and the resilience that children employ will all be reviewed. CBT, EDMR, and other treatment modalities will be addressed - including their effectiveness. Finally, we will tackle how to avoid the pitfalls of burnout in the mental health and related fields.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
