Goal: To improve participants’ ability to build effective and collaborative treatment teams with caregivers of traumatized children.
Content and Methods: Service provision is most effective when services are provided and planned for by a unified and collaborative team. The caregivers of traumatized children are perhaps the key “players” on any treatment team, and engagement and support of these caregivers is crucial to effective and sustainable change. This workshop will discuss factors which both hinder and increase engagement of caregivers. Key issues including parental trauma history, systemic mistrust, the role of the attachment system, cultural factors, individual differences in parenting style, and the role of a therapeutic alliance will be discussed. A variety of scenarios and concrete techniques will be provided.
