Responding to Developmental Trauma: Treatment and Care With Daniel A. Hughes, Ph.D.

Thursday, October 24, 2019 8:30AM-4:00PM

Pineland Campus, 15 Farm View Drive, Pineland Farms, New Gloucester, Maine 04260



Conference Overview

Children and youth who have experienced abuse and neglect are at high risk for significant difficulties in their neurological, affective, cognitive, and behavioral development.  Therapeutic and caregiving interventions based on attachment and neurobiology can create “safe relationships” where children and teens can develop a greater ability to regulate their emotions, resolve conflicts and traumatic experiences, and establish coherent narratives. In this day-long workshop, Dan will explore the principles and strategies of both psychological treatment and daily care which utilize an understanding of attachment, neurobiology and trauma. This model of intervention will be demonstrated with videos of treatment sessions.
