Workshop Description

COVID-19/Coronavirus Updated Cancellation Policy HERE

Many of our students that we work with experience complex problems due to extensive trauma and attachment disturbances. When these disturbances are not carefully addressed and treated during childhood and adolescent, these early wounds often lead to mental health issues and other dysfunctional patterns of behaviour later on in life.

In this course you will come to understand the impact of trauma on the developing mind and how attachment is formed or lost through traumatic events.  You will learn how the brain is organized through healthy attachment and the critical elements of healthy attachment.  We will examine the current neuroscience behind both trauma and attachment and the top evidence-based strategies to address key DSM-V disorder through the lens of trauma.
