Trauma in Young Children: Observing & Intervening to Improve Outcomes
The purpose of this workshop is to provide education on the presentation of symptoms and behaviors in children under 6 years-old who have experienced trauma. The workshop will then describe and present skills and strategies, as well as appropriate evidence-based, trauma-informed interventions, for young children to reduce symptoms and behaviors related to trauma. Outcome research on the presented treatment models will be shared to provide the context for improving outcomes for young children. Case examples will be utilized to help participants understand potential challenges and the important successes in treatment implementation with this population. This presentation will include lecture, case studies and group discussion.
Attendees will be able to:
- Describe the presentation of trauma in young children
- Identify three appropriate interventions for young children who have experienced trauma
- Recognize related cultural and individual variables that can impact trauma-related symptoms and behaviors in young children
- List improved outcomes for this population with the use of evidence-based practices
