Understanding and Treating Trauma

Children who experience traumatic events can respond in a wide variety of ways. Commonly, challenging symptoms included in the diagnostic criteria for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, such as reexperiencing the event, avoiding various reminders of the event, alterations in arousal, and changes in thoughts and mood, serve to shape expectations of how children will or should respond to a… More potentially traumatic event. While such difficulties do result for some and can significantly negatively impact one’s functioning (e.g., ability to establish relationships, regulate mood and behaviors), adverse events can also provide an opportunity for tremendous growth and resilience. This webinar will discuss incidence and common facts related to trauma, the diversity of events that can be considered “traumatic,” key factors related to resiliency that can be promoted by parents and professionals alike, and best practices for trauma treatment. This session is being presented by: Joseph Ferrito, Psy.D. Rebecca K. Schulman, Psy.D., BCBA-D Behavior Therapy Associates This webinar is being offered free of charge.
