Complex or developmental trauma: where does it come from? How to treat it?
In this presentation, the following questions will be answered:
• What are the etiological causes for complex or developmental trauma and what are the consequences as the manifest in children's symptoms and behaviors?
• Why do we need to include the broader context in which the child develops as part of the therapeutic intervention (school, community)?
• How can we adapt the three-staged model of treatment for complex trauma, according to the specific and unique needs of the developing child?
Children represent the most vulnerable part of the population to the exposure of interpersonal trauma. Interpersonal trauma occurs most of the time in the context of family or caretaking systems leading children to a chronic experience of "fear without solution", in a sensitive moment of development.
The roots for developmental trauma are found in: A) the chronic exposure tot traumatic events of interpersonal nature, and B) the occurrence of these traumatic events compromise the attachment system, either because the attachment figure is directly involved as a traumatic agent, or because fails to protect the child from further harm. The conjunction of these two factors lead to a general dysregulation pattern which includes affect, behavior, consciousness, relationships and the body.
