Designed for professionals who routinely interact with adolescents in the urban setting where the experience of complex trauma may be often overlooked. This workshop seeks to enhance participants’ understanding of the often complicated and difficult to recognize clinical presentations of adolescents who have experienced complex trauma and are interacting with multiple service systems. This workshop will assist the participants in recognizing potential complex trauma symptomology, engagement strategies for this population, and intervention techniques. Symptoms, engagement, risk management, and treatment of complex trauma symptomatology will be discussed.
