Event Description

The Manifestation of Childhood Trauma in Adulthood (multi-day training) Part 1: Assessment/Part 2: Treatment

Trauma is a universal concept that every human being endures at some point in their lives. Oftentimes individuals sustain multiple traumas, and some become so pervasive and acute that they can develop into Big “T” traumas that can last for generations. According to SAMSHA, in the US two thirds of children report at least experiencing one traumatic event by age 16. The impact of these traumas often has long lasting effects and can manifest into adulthood trauma, which can affect various domains of functioning. There is a clear and distinct correlation between childhood trauma and later manifestations of adult trauma: addiction, mental health (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), attachment and intimacy issues and resiliency. This workshop will explore the myriad of ways in which childhood trauma clinically, physically, emotionally, and psychologically presents in adulthood. Part 1 will focus on assessment and Part 2 will focus on exploring treatment modalities. Participants will learn how to assess childhood trauma and how to comprehensively gather a historical trauma narrative. This is an interactive workshop where case vignettes will be presented, and participants will work in a group setting. 


Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize and appraise the manifestation of childhood trauma in adulthood.  (Part 1 & 2)
  2. Understand and explore the concept of attachment theory and how childhood trauma effects attachment throughout someone’s life into adulthood.  (Part 1 & Part 2)
  3. Analyze the connection between childhood trauma and increased mental health and addictions problems in adolescence and adulthood. (Part 1: Assessment)
  4. Increase participant’s knowledge of the various screening tools, and the types of questions to ask and avoid during the assessment process.  (Part 2: Treatment)
  5. Participants will be able to articulate and apply appropriate treatment modalities depending on the type of trauma experienced.   (Part 2: Treatment)

Upon completion of this course attendees will earn 6 Category I Contact Hours.
