Workshop Will Encompass:



Defining Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and describe how it differs from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Identifying the primary causes of CPTSD.
Identifying the domino effect of CPTSD including the physiological, memory, emotional and behavioral issues.
Recognizing the impact that CPTSD has on families and significant others, who were not traumatized.
Participants will be able to describe two major treatment interventions for use in the treatment of CPTSD.
This will be an information filled workshop for both parents and professionals on Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The material will range from the causes and effects in children to the treatment and relief of symptoms. Current research has shown that traumas experienced in life can result in physical damage to the brain affecting such things as long term memory, impulsiveness, and ability to connect to others. Through fun, interactive and experimental methods participants will learn to be the key in helping to healing the brain.

I need a re-charge and have been looking for workshops, but I think Texas might be a bit far away. :D
