Join Robert Rhoton Psy D., LPC, D.A.A.E.T.S. and Camea Peca PHD (C) in a three day training designed to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes by approaching child and youth trauma from a family base. Learn how to capture the resources of a family to improve care create greater safety and stability for families. This approach not only improves the life of a child, but changes the dynamic of an entire family.
There is increasing evidence that child focused trauma therapy will be more effective if the caregiving system is engaged in the treatment process. It is difficult to help a child be more stable that the environment that they are living within. This program is designed to help the clinician more effectively support and encourage families and other caregivers to be involved in the process of helping children recover from trauma. There are many counselors that desire to be more effective in working with traumatized children and families but find it challenging and uncomfortable to have discussion with families about trauma, and often feel awkward and then avoid doing so by overly focusing on the child. This increases the time the child is in services and can erode clinical confidence in promoting recovery and healing for trauma. Young children are exposed to traumatic stressors at an increasing rate in today’s society making it essential that clinicians have the skills necessary to help children and families navigate and recovery from these troubling experiences.
