Experiencing childhood or adolescent traumatic events can have profound effects on the survivor’s neurobiological, psychological, emotional and behavioral development. Understanding how trauma sequelae manifests in the developing adolescent brain can help providers and caretakers better comprehend how to interact with, teach, nurture and conceptualize adolescent survivors of trauma. Additionally, the neurobiological explanation of trauma serves as a rationale for implementing micro- and macro-level changes to foster reparative growth in adolescent trauma survivors.                                                                               

Method:  Lecture, discussion. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn about adolescent brain development.
  2. Participants will learn about how traumatic events can modify brain development in adolescents.
  3. Participants will learn specific strategies on how to help foster healthy change and growth in adolescent trauma survivors.
