Description

Course Format

Recorded webinar.


Due to the biobehavioral and contextual consequences of trauma that stretch across generations with profound lifelong impacts, there is a clear need for change in understanding and valuing the protective functions of the family. Trauma, like other health conditions, is best addressed within a social ecological context with intervention at the level of the family being the most feasible and likely way to improve coping and break cycles of trauma.

In the trauma field we focus much attention on the stress response, but two other systems- the attachment and safety systems, are equally important to how families co-regulate and cope. Those systems help families and family members develop and maintain the ability to connect with others and use these connections to deal in healthy ways with trauma.

This day-long workshop provides an overview of family coping, including the physiology of coping, and then examines how family systems are influenced by chronic stress and trauma to alter family coping. Finally, core healing resources for families are conceptualized along with specific and related therapeutic activities that increase families’ coping resources to practice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Integrate biopsychosocial theories to form a foundation for understanding family coping.
  2. Examine the impact of chronic stress and trauma on family coping resources.
  3. Identify at least 3 core family healing resources.
  4. Practice at least 3 therapeutic strategies for strengthening family coping resources.
  5. Use 1 new strategy in their work with families.
