People with developmental disabilities experience mental health issues as a result of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse and neglect in greater numbers than the general public. Behaviors are often mistaken as non-compliance, manipulative, and attention-seeking when in actuality they may be a response to earlier experiences of trauma. Through understanding the neurobiology of trauma, participants will begin to reshape their view of behaviors and develop a toolbox of evidence-based strategies to effectively support those in their care.
Understanding the impact of trauma on one’s development, identity and behaviours are imperative when providing support. This training will explore the neurobiology of trauma and its impact on those with a developmental disability and/or mental health problems. It will offer a reframing of behaviours through a trauma-informed lens. Participants will walk away with a toolbox filled with strategies to best support individuals using evidence-based strategies.
