Course Description

Hours: 12

Given the ongoing challenges to our social and political climate, it is important to increase our understanding of complex trauma to ensure we effectively support those we serve. There has been much debate in the literature about the nature, diagnosis and treatment of complex trauma, including how it differs in progression from isolated traumatic incidents. Although exposure to isolated events produces specific behavioural and biological responses, experiences of repeated, chronic and/or prolonged traumatization tend to interfere with our neurobiological and emotional development, inhibiting our ability to integrate sensory, emotional, and cognitive information into a meaningful whole. Symptomatology associated with complex trauma is pervasive and multifaceted, often leading to increased contact with a variety of correctional, medical, and social services. 

This two-day workshop intends to support participants with developing a more nuanced understanding of complex trauma by exploring how it alters our experience of the world. It will examine the influence on our neurobiology and development, as well as increase participants’ sensitivity to factors that contribute to its etiology. It will also review therapeutic approaches that are best suited to effective treatment and enhance awareness about the ways in which complex trauma intersects with vulnerable groups.
