Understanding and Managing the Effect of Trauma on Your Child’s Nervous System: Body-Oriented Approaches

Rhonda Kelloway, LCSW, SEP

Many children in adoption and foster care have trauma. This workshop helps you understand what makes something traumatic, and how trauma affects and even shapes the autonomic nervous system, leading to physiological and emotional dysregulation. Learn how body-oriented therapies, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Somatic Experiencing (SE) can help your child’s regulation improve.
