Event description
This talk will cover the impact of complex trauma, toxic stress, and fear on brain development, learning, and family attachments, as well as ways to intervene. This will be framed in the context of historical immigrant experiences and the current socio-political climate and immigration policy of forced family separations. Trauma informed strategies to foster repair among ruptured attachments will be explored by using case-based learning in small groups. The experience of immigration including potential risk and protective factors will be a thread throughout the conversation.
