Event information

Establishing Safe Connections: Helping Children Who Have Experienced Trauma and Loss

Sian Philips

Dr. Sian Phillips

Trainer: Dr. Sian Phillips

“Healthy relationships in the early years facilitate optimal brain integration and development and are correlated with mental health. However, when children experience abuse, neglect, or multiple caregivers, the high level of stress associated with these experiences changes the architecture of their brain and makes it difficult for them to establish relationships. In the absence of good enough relationships, children are at risk for neurological, cognitive, emotional and behavioural challenges that take them away from the pathway towards mental health.

Many children, when placed in a setting that provides attuned, and sensitive responsiveness, are able to learn how to engage in and benefit from the dyadic experiences provided by a foster or adoptive parent or a different family member. Other children who have been much more traumatized and compromised in those aspects of their development have much greater difficulty responding to their new caregiver.

This workshop introduces basic theory and understanding of brain development and the principles of
Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP). The principles of DDP will guide case examples for the
purposes of learning how an adult can support a child who cannot trust relationships.”

The one-day workshop is also the first day of this DDP Level One Training course.

Who is it for?

This workshop is relevant for those parenting and caring for children with attachment and trauma histories. It is also relevant for counselors, therapists, teachers, educational assistants, youth care staff, social service and mental health care providers working with children and their families.
