In this workshop we will discuss recent information from developmental science describing the effects of trauma experienced by infants and toddlers. What is traumatic for children during this developmental period? How are these experiences carried forward, and how might they influence social relationships and learning? During this session we plan to offer substantial time to address and discuss with participants from an infant mental health perspective common and persistent questions about such topics and constructs as: Adverse Childhood Experiences, complex developmental trauma, neurological and "sequential" approaches to understanding the consequences of trauma, and more. After and introductory overview we will address your questions, comments, experiences, and opinions during this interactive portion of the workshop.

Increasingly child advocates have been calling for organizations, groups, and individual professionals to become "trauma informed". Scientific evidence documenting the relationship between the experience trauma and maladaptive patterns of social and personal functioning has been compelling for mental health and health care professionals. The publication of epidemiological data on Adverse Childhood Experiences has provided policy makers with compelling evidence that these early experiences can lead to painful and costly physical health problems, and such experiences are more common and widespread that previously recognized. The development, dissemination, and marketing of various intervention programs and therapies are predictable consequences of the increasing attention to the physical, emotional, and economic "cost" of early trauma. In this workshop we will talk about a few of these interventions, how they align with the "science" of infant mental health and what we know about early childhood development. We will offer suggestions and questions for discussion The workshop will address competencies required for ITMHCA Endorsement for Culturally Sensitive, Relationship Focused Practice Promoting Infant Mental Health at Levels 2, 3, & 4.

The cost is $40.00 for ITMHCA members; $50.00 for non-members.
