Bruce D. Perry Speaker Event
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 | 9am - 4:30pm
Experiences – both good and bad – profoundly influence the development of a child’s brain.
Understanding brain development can give us insight into how experience impacts the social, cognitive and physiological functioning of a child’s brain. Trauma, neglect, and the absence of essential experiences required to express the fundamental potential of a child pervasive problems in our culture. This presentation will review clinical work and research that can help us better understand developmental trauma, neglect, and the relational problems that arise from these. Parents, clinicians, service providers and those involved in policy/advocacy will all learn new directions for their work.
This speaker event will cover:
• Understand the effects of trauma and neglect from a neurodevelopmental perspective.
• Identify signs and symptoms of trauma and neglect in young children.
• Learn new strategies for direct care as well as program and policy development
