Event Details

"Emotional Regulation of Children with a Trauma History"
Registration Deadline 7/12/17


Training Description:
How can we help children with a history of trauma develop the ability to express feelings in constructive ways instead of impulsive or hurtful ways? Using lecture, exercises, and discussion, this workshop will explore the concept of emotional regulation in children with a history of trauma. Neurobiological and clinical models of emotional regulation will be discussed within an ecological perspective. Practical skills to support children will be shared, with a particular emphasis on working with parents and teachers.​

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe conceptual and empirical foundations of emotional regulation, including neurobiological models, developmental considerations, social factors, psychopathology, and interventions.

  • Participants will be able to list practical skills to promote emotional regulation while working with children in a clinical setting as well as skills to share with parents and teachers.

Who Should Attend?
This talk is geared to mental health clinicians, but would also be valuable to family partners, outreach workers, school personnel, health professionals, child welfare workers, and others.
