Beyond Trauma-Informed Care: A Developmental-Relational Framework for Engaging Adults and Children in Healing and Resilience (March 2024)
Family- and child-facing providers will learn about a developmental-relational framework that will deepen their understanding of the individual and systemic impact of trauma and support their work with children and families. We will explore identification and intervention strategies that can enhance relationship-based, developmentally informed practices to support healthy development and promote healing and resilience for both children and their adult caregivers. Participants will learn to better understand and respond with empathy to behavior displayed by children and adults who have experienced trauma, while also supporting their development of a greater sense of trust and safety. Key concepts and strategies from the Touchpoints Developmental and Relational Frameworks will be woven throughout the series.
