This interactive training will focus on a strengthsbased perspective in work with children and adults who have experienced trauma. Participants will learn how trauma impacts the brain and body, as well as how those who have experienced trauma think about themselves and the traumatic events. Using the research of Brené Brown, participants will discuss the effect of shame and its capacity to cause disconnection, as well as the importance of boundaries for both clinicians and clients. Participants will gain an understanding of mindfulness, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and sensorimotor strategies as resources to help clients; they will also discuss the importance of understanding transference and countertransference.
