Description

The Impact of Trauma on Brain Development and What To Do About It: The Collaborative Problem Solving Approach

There is renewed interest in the effects of chronic, overwhelming stress and trauma on children’s development, learning and behavior. Parents, educators and clinicians strive to provide a trauma-informed discipline. Yet, we often still struggle to understand the impact of trauma on brain development in a concrete and tangible way, and we all long for concrete strategies that operationalize what brain science tells us will be helpful to facilitate development arrested as a result of complex developmental trauma. Dr. Stuart Ablon explains the impact of chronic stress, adversity and trauma on development, makes complicated neurodevelopmental concepts accessible, and provides a practical, evidence-based process for trauma-informed care that everyone at school can follow. The Collaborative Problem Solving approach operationalizes the ideals of trauma-informed practices, reflects the latest neuroscience, can be applied by all adults, and has demonstrated effectiveness across settings.


Dr. Ablon is author of the books Changeable, The School Discipline Fix AND Treating Explosive Kids.
