We know that children in care have faced multiple traumas that often include abuse, neglect, or exposure to parental addiction. We also know that trauma impacts normal development since it compromises a child's ability to develop attachment, trust, and emotional regulation. This seminar provides an opportunity to understand the effects of trauma, specifically developmental trauma, as well as identifying ways to support these children in their growth and healing.
