Developmental Trauma: When childhood adaptive styles become adulthood maladaptive behaviors
Friday June 28, 2019
9:00am - 4:30pm
6 contact hours total:
- 6 NBCC credit hours
- NCSAPPB approved substance use specific (SS) and psychopathology training (PSY)
Description: Ann takes care of everyone else and often to her own detriment, Bridget is afraid she will be rejected if people knew the “real” her, and Craig is concerned that he cannot maintain a relationship for longer than six months. Although clients present with a variety of issues, there may be a common denominator, developmental trauma. In this workshop, we will explore early childhood attachment trauma, adaptive survival styles and long term impact into adulthood. We will learn how developmental trauma affects future substance use. We will explore how early trauma impacts self-image, connection and self-regulation and how we as clinicians can promote healing and connection.
- Become familiar with the five adaptive survival styles as proposed by the Neuro-Affective Relational Model.
- Introduction to Adverse Childhood Experience study and correlation between early trauma and increased risk of mental health and substance use issues.
- Identify best practice and be able to apply therapies which promote connection, healing and resiliency.
- Be able to describe how developmental trauma affects future substance use in individuals.
Lunch, coffee, water, and tea are all included!
We look forward to seeing you there!
