Trauma Informed Care: Understanding & Responding to Trauma Reactions in Youth
Dr. Beale will introduce how brain research has influenced our field in the last decade. Reflecting on the work of Bruce Perry regarding key brain concepts, we’ll review how factors like poverty, neglect and trauma make it very difficult to intervene successfully with our clients. By increasing our understanding of their reactivity, reviewing strategies to manage crises, and following a specific sequence in treatment, providers will learn how to support and heal wounded brains.
