Through Our Eyes: Children, Violence and Trauma

ID: 5202WEB

In this webinar, we will look at the incidence, patterns, and occurrences of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Additionally, the webinar will review how PTSD negatively affects children in various developmental stages and the potential lifelong impact. Further, a discussion of grief versus trauma, complex PTSD and its relation to self-concept and later anxiety issues, neurological issues, and the resilience that children employ will all be reviewed. CBT, EDMR, and other treatment modalities will be addressed - including their effectiveness. Finally, we will tackle how to avoid the pitfalls of burnout in the mental health and related fields.
