Conference Description: 

Trauma informed approaches to care, aim to teach emotional regulation. This can be accomplished by increasing stable and continuous emotional states. The goal is to help youth maintain calm or alert states, prevent discontinuous states and build mediating cognitive structures.  Staff and care giving systems are focused on youth’s behaviors. They are not always able to identify what became adaptive strategies that look behavioral.   Youth’s capacity to regulate is directly related to co-regulation skills demonstrated in the treatment milieu, and often times lie in relationships for this particular skill to be developed.  This training develops an understanding from a neurological and regulation lens in order to assist youth and staff in developing relationships for healing.

Conference Objectives:

  • Distinguish single event & complex trauma and how symptoms and behaviors become functional.
  • Discuss 7 Core Concepts of Regulation and the impact that disorganized attachment has in nurturing relationships and care giving systems
  • Describe the use of sensory regulation tools in the treatment milieu and the role co regulation has in a trauma informed environment
  • Discuss the role of culture in how people perceive trauma, understand trauma, and integrate traumatic experience and social responses
