Trauma Recovery for Children & Adolescents: Body-Focused Mindfulness Techniques for Healing, Resilience & Growth


Credit Available - See Credits tab below.



Description

  • Signs to look for– microfacial gestures and subtle body cues
  • Physiological relief from trauma hyper-arousal
  • Decrease – frontal lobe activity, cortisol production, anxiety/ worry thinking

Child and adolescent victims of trauma, single episode or recurrent, are struggling to survive devastating and quite often unthinkable horrific experiences. Our goal is to insure that we prevent re-traumatization and hyper-arousal by employing time-proven and research driven effective therapeutic strategies.

Join Edward Caslin, LCSW, as he shares his clinical expertise in working with kids, both urban and suburban, facing single and recurrent traumas from:

  • PTSD
  • Physical/emotional/domestic violence
  • Separation/divorce
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Harassment/bullying
  • Shootings/bodily harm
  • Homelessness
  • Perpetuated messages of over-achievement & performance

He will show you how to treat kids to recognize their physiological responses to everyday triggers without re-activating their trauma arousal response to such stimuli through body focused mindfulness techniques. You will learn how to best help kids develop the necessary self-employed coping skills to contend with current and future situations. Kids will learn to choose to respond, not react, to daily trauma arousal stimuli and triggers through:

  • Relaxation breathing
  • Yoga
  • Deep breathing
  • Tai Chi
  • Guided Imagery meditation
  • Chi Gong
  • Individual meditation
  • Aerobic body movement
  • Fun, simplistic activities and games

This course provides clinicians a change in assessment perspective validating adoption of time proven alternative approaches for expedient and effective trauma treatment of kids!!
