This talk is for youth workers, teachers, parents, foster carers, virtual school workers, residential workers, and so forth.

For us to be effective and meaningful when building relationships with traumatized children and young people, we need to have increased awareness and knowledge around the numerous and multi layered influence of loss, trauma and toxic stress on that person.

 

Children traumatized by either abuse or neglect have very special therapeutic needs.

We need to be able to view their behaviour within the context of the relationship and as a form of communication.

You will learn 

Why the child or young person is easily dysregulated and becomes angry or distressed.

How to build the relationship in the calm moments.

What are the common themes in terms of triggering?

How to help the person regulate their emotions.

It is hard to be a teenager in today's world, but it is also hard to be a parent or a helper at school, It is hard to manage self-harm, or be truly trauma-informed. There is so much to get right in the helping and teaching professions. 

My name is Helen Harvey and I am a child & adolescent therapist specializing in the area of trauma. I run workshops for the helping professions i.e. pastoral staff, health visitors, youth workers, and residential workers, helping them to be truly trauma-informed and to develop the skills necessary to support young people in this challenging world.
