    Children that have been traumatized have heightened environmental awareness, and increased reactivity. Children with sensory integration disorders have difficulty processing sensory input.

    Child social, emotional and psychological deficits related to foster care placement
    For many children being placed in foster is substituting one form of trauma for another. There is significant evidence that the length of time in care, number of placements, the Child’s understanding of status, and placement choices (quantity, quality, types) all impact physical and emotional development in children. Some of the health effects are: (1) More growth delays; (2) Higher incidence of illnesses; (3) Untreated health problems; (4) Fragmented heath care due to move and lack of continuity of provider. The impact on the social and psychological development can be equally profound. (4 – 6 hours)

    Adult Attachment Disorder & Treatment 
    Unresolved childhood attachment issues leave an adult vulnerable to difficulties in forming secure adult relationships. Patterns of attachment continue through the life cycle and across generations. New relations are affected by the expectations developed in past relationships. There is a strong correlation between insecure adult attachment and marital dissatisfaction and negative marital interactions. If an adult does not feel safe with others, he/she will tend to be either rejecting of their partner or overly clingy.  Attachment problems are often handed down transgenerationally unless someone breaks the chain. As a parent, an insecurely attached adult may lack the ability to form a strong attachment to their child and provide the necessary attachment cues required for the healthy emotional development of the child thereby predisposing their child to a lifetime of relationship difficulties

    Understanding and treating abusive personality disorders

Personality disorders, also known as Axis II disorders, include obsessive-compulsive PD, avoidant PD, paranoid PD and borderline PD. While people with PDs can possess very different personality disturbances, they have at least one thing in common: chances are their mental illness will not remit without professional intervention. This workshop examines the nature of the disorders, the developmental processes related to the disorders and intervention strategies.
