Brain Development and Trauma (Part A,B & C) – 3 sessions
How do early childhood experiences of trauma and abuse effect the developing brain, the nervous system, human behaviour and memory? How can children’s development and recovery be supported following the experience of adversity? All these questions and more will be unravelled in this three-part interactive course.
A must for anyone who works with children and families, this course will explore how the brain develops in the early years of life and the way that the environment interacts with our biology to influence brain development.
The participants will have the opportunity to:
- Gain an understanding of the biology of the brain, the key brain structures and their functions;
- Exploring the overview of Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model of Brian Development;
- Developing an understanding of how to support healthy brain development – the role of the environment and attachment;
- Understand the impact of trauma and adversity on brain development in childhood;
- Explore the effect of toxic stress on the functioning of the stress response system and hormones;
- Develop an understanding for changes in brain structure and functioning as a result of trauma including the effect on memory systems, learning and cognition, and
- Understand the key principles for supporting children’s development and recovery following adversity.
