Complex and cumulative trauma may impact on every aspect of a child's life, affecting their emotional development, ability to form fulfilling relationships and their capacity to self-regulate. Join us for this one-day conference on March 17 in central Glasgow to consider the impact of trauma as it reverberates between child, care giver, practitioner and institution. What is the significance to the child? What is the impact on the practitioner? How do the unconscious processes of anxiety and defence inherent in trauma work affect services? And what is the role of organisations in containing and managing these dynamics?
Our plenary speakers are Robin Balbernie, Clinical Director, Parent Infant Partnership UK; Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist, Monica Lanyado; and Professor of Social Work, Gillian Ruch.
In addition, three themed workshops will allow delegates to explore topics in depth:
1. working with traumatised children, young people and their families
2. secondary trauma in relation to foster care (emphasis on practitioners)
3. the impact of trauma on services.
