Treating traumatised children and adolescents can be challenging even for experienced practitioners.
This training program will provide you with the confidence to use a toolkit of evidence-based interventions to address PTSD and other posttraumatic mental health conditions in young people, whether due to single or repeated traumatic experiences.
The two-day workshop is followed by three group-based consultations with an expert trainer – supporting you to apply and refine your new skills.
With the aid of expert demonstrations, you will learn and practise a range of skills using a family-sensitive approach, including exposure, cognitive, and emotion regulation interventions. The importance of a thorough clinical assessment and comprehensive treatment plan is emphasised.
A comprehensive manual with practitioner tools and client handouts is provided.
