Helping Clients Move Forward from Developmental Trauma (3HR)

In their book Nurturing Resilience, Kathy Kain and Stephen Terrell explore the impact of preverbal and prememory trauma on developmental physiology and adaptive responses. What makes this book significant is how the authors synthesize findings from attachment theory, polyvagal theory, brain development, and trauma physiology into a unified conceptualization of how to heal from trauma. In this training, we will do a deep dive into the world of neuroscience and trauma, and learn practical ways to deepen our practices as trauma-informed clinicians who can then best assist our clients in building their resilience.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the impact of early traumatic experiences on the nervous system
  • Identify the importance of somatic work on healing from trauma
  • Review how attachment theory, polyvagal theory, and brain development are connected to adaptive responses to trauma
  • Discuss how to build resilience after trauma
  • Understand how to assist clients in creating a sense of safety and regulation

Social workers completing this course receive 3 Clinical asynchronous continuing education credits.

For other board approvals, this course qualifies for 3 hours of Clinical, Trauma, Evidence-Based Practices, and General Skill Building continuing education training.
