Childhood Trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences

Trumbull County Educational Service Center in conjunction with and Ashland University present:

Childhood Trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs):
Innovative Strategies for Emotional and Behavioral Improvement

Childhood trauma, attachment disorders, and emotion regulation concerns impact over four million children and adolescents each year. In this cutting-edge workshop, Michael S. Prokop, national “Trauma and PTSD” trainer for PESI seminars, will review the ACEs research study and integrate the core concepts and skills necessary to facilitate positive change with challenging children/adolescents with trauma and attachment wounds. You will discover that there are clear and dramatic ways that ACEs harm children and you will learn healing strategies based on interpersonal neurobiology, emotion and affect regulation, trauma and attachment theory, psychomotor processing, somatic experiencing and positive psychology.
After completing the workshop, you will be able to 1) define the psychological, social, cognitive and biological aspects of trauma and attachment disorder, 2) understand the social brain, attunement and “styles of parent-child attachment” which include secure, avoidant, ambivalent and disorganized attachments, 3) utilize skill-based and experiential techniques to improve emotion dysregulation, core beliefs, PTSD symptoms and relationship patterns, 4) help resistant traumatized students achieve positive personal, academic and relationship goals and 5) help create secure and fulfilling relationships by establishing a calming presence, facilitating limbic resonance and safety with your students!!
