Applying A Developmental-Relational Framework in Working with Adults Who Have Experienced Trauma

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT

How do adults cope with traumatic experiences? When someone experiences a traumatic event, it might influence them immediately, or the impacts of the event might appear later in life. Professionals who work with families who have experienced trauma sometimes experience stress or relive their own traumatic histories while doing this work. In this workshop, you will learn about the ways that adults cope with trauma – both as it happens, and later in life – and strategies you can use to support healing and resilience when working with adults and caregivers dealing with current trauma or traumatic histories.

In this session, participants will:

  • Consider ways to engage in strengths-based interactions with colleagues and caregivers who have experienced trauma
  • Learn strategies for self-care and compassion when working with families and caregivers who have experienced trauma

This workshop is designed for professionals who work with families of young children interested in supporting children and families who have experienced trauma. Professionals may include early care educators, family child care providers, mental health consultants, home visitors, pediatricians, early interventionists, and more.

This series benefits family-facing providers who are new to the Touchpoints Approach as well as those who have been trained in Touchpoints. The series also benefits providers who have varying familiarity with trauma-informed care.

This workshop is the third of three workshops in the series, Beyond Trauma-Informed Care: A Developmental-Relational Framework for Engaging Adults and Children in Healing and Resilience, which explores strengths-based foundational concepts and actionable strategies related to trauma, adaptation, healing, and resilience. Family- and child-facing providers learn about a developmental-relational framework that will deepen their understanding of the individual and systemic impact of trauma and support their work with children and families. We explore identification and intervention strategies that can enhance relationship-based, developmentally informed practices to support healthy development and promote healing and resilience for both children and their adult caregivers. Participants learn to better understand and respond with empathy to behavior displayed by children and adults who have experienced trauma, while also supporting their development of a greater sense of trust and safety. Key concepts and strategies from the Touchpoints Developmental and Relational Frameworks are woven throughout the series.

You can register for each webinar individually or save $10 by signing up for the whole series.
