SafeGuards Training For Children and Adult Services
WEBSITE: Visit the website
Evidence based trauma informed cognitive behavioural interventions have assisted numerous children, youth and adults successfully integrate traumatic experience. Barriers to this success have arisen when the traumatized individual involved is stuck in a limbically reactive state.
Severe behavioural disturbances resulting from chaotic, violent and disrupted attachment experiences often challenge effective engagement in CBT methods.
In some ways, for these individuals CBT is the graduate program when the clinical needs are at a primary school level! The clinical match is "off".
These clients many times complete CBT program but re-enter the system for similar problematic symptoms and behaviour. The method is sound; the therapist is competent; but is the client ready?
This institute will review an approach and methodology which has been successful in preparing children to better engage in traditional CBT intervention. One of the areas examined will be the impact of developmental arrest and its implications for effective trauma treatment. Focus will be on specific "hands on" interventions for use with children, youth and adults.
The needs of caregivers will be taken in to account when developing appropriate family support and intervention. Included will be biological families, foster families and residential staff.
A protocol for screening and assessing clinical needs will be reviewed.
Case examples will be used to illustrate clinical material. Audience is welcome to present particularly challenging case examples for discussion.
