Tentacles of trauma (Effects of trauma)

Joining us from the UK, we're very pleased to announce a special night with well known author, therapist and renowned speaker, Sarah Dillon. 

Sarah Dillon along with Sarah Naish has co-authored many best selling therapeutic parenting books for parents and children including The Quick Guide to Therapeutic Parenting and Therapeutic Parenting Essentials {Moving from Trauma to Trust}. 

According to Dillon, her “background is that of a looked after child. I spent most of my childhood in the care system. Having had 4 foster placements and spending time in 4 children’s homes, I was finally placed with a foster parent who through exceptional patience, love and support enabled me to begin to value myself and recover from trauma. I have four children of my own and five grandchildren.” 

This 3 hour online training course will help participants to understand why children with a history of trauma and neglect behave in the way they do. They will gain a further understanding of how historical trauma is recreated in the present. The trainer will give insight into the internal survival world of such children. We will explore how Developmental Trauma Disorder is at the root of all challenging behaviours. We will discuss how to depersonalise behaviours. We will end with linking behaviour to unmet needs and early life experiences. 

This is a night-time carer and agency staff session, that will start at 7pm until 10pm AEDT.
