The event will explain how the cognitive model is a useful way to understand how children and young people can be traumatised by events, including how post-traumatic stress disorder may develop. It will then consider the evidence for what decreases symptoms of PTSD in children and young people, and how such evidence can inform clinical interventions.
The evidence concerning early interventions intended to prevent the subsequent development of symptoms will also be considered, and clear pragmatic (rather than prescriptive) guidelines will be presented. It will consider the extent to which complex traumatic events lead to different complex reactions, and whether more complex solutions are indicated.
This event will be useful for anyone who may encounter presentations of trauma in their work. It will inform the work of clinicians working directly with children, young people and families in any setting.
Please note, lunch will be provided.
