Time: 9.00am - 5.00pm

The impact of childhood trauma (complex trauma) is being recognised as the single biggest cause of adult mental health problems, relationship problems, career and lifestyle problems, as well as many physical diseases, including early mortality.

This one-day workshop will introduce participant’s to how exposure to adversity impacts the developing brains and bodies of children and later adults. Participants will learn to assess and creatively respond to the legacy of complex developmental trauma on the autonomic nervous system, on the emotional system and on the higher brain - cognitively.
