Principles in the Treatment of Trauma 

Presented by: Dr. Richard S. Zayed, C. Psych

Given the role of childhood trauma as a determinant of physical and mental health across the lifespan, its treatment is essential to healthcare outcomes and the realization of people's developmental capacities. However the treatment of childhood trauma, particularly complex developmental trauma, can be quite challenging. This workshop aims to provide an overview of the stages of trauma treatment as conceptualized across treatment modalities and approaches. The role of attachment and relational responsiveness will be reviewed as critical aspects of the healing journey.

Learning Objectives:

1. Be able to identify the three stages of trauma treatment

2. Be able to apply treatment concepts to their work with children, adolescents, and families

3. Recognize one's role in the trauma healing journey and when referrals are needed
