This audio conference workshop, which was originally held on February 23, 2009, assists helping professionals to develop a clearer understanding of definitions and types of traumatic experiences in children. Special attention is given to working with children who have experienced chronic or complex trauma in the form of abuse or neglect. This workshop addresses biological, psychological, and social impacts of trauma to help social workers provide more effective assessment of and intervention for affected children over the course of their development.
This workshop also looks at intervention strategies that can be utilized by caseworkers, clinicians & social workers in a variety of settings to help children deal with the lasting impacts of their traumatic experiences and to move forward in the healing process. In summary, this workshop emphasizes an understanding of the needs of the traumatized child from a whole person perspective in the context of their social environment and integrates biblical concepts to provide a framework for hope and healing.
