Complex Trauma in Children

ID: 5661

Exposure to multiple traumatic events early in life within the context of the caregiving system can have profound and long-lasting impacts. These experiences affect how people experience others and react to events, and often lead to dysfunction in a variety of ways: problems in establishing stable relationships; problems managing emotions; problems controlling behavior; and problems in planning and following through on plans. The difficulties typically go beyond the basic criteria for PTSD. Often, these children do not have narrative memories for the events that occurred. If the problems they present are not understand as reactions to complex trauma, the interventions chosen to address them are not helpful and the children often fail in the many systems they enter. This workshop will provide an overview of what constitutes complex trauma, the ways in which individuals with these histories are impacted, as well as a discussion of how understanding these issues can make our interventions more successful.
