Boost Mindfulness to Promote Co-Regulation

October 15 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Sudbury

Co-regulation is a key component in many evidence-based approaches such as Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI), and relationship- and attachment-based models.

October 18 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Have we integrated the learning about 'trauma', it's various contributing factors? Is lack of attachment a trauma? Are we doing things that do not help or may even cause pain?

Principles and Practices of Trauma-Informed Care

October 18 @ 9:00 am - October 19 @ 4:00 pm

Trauma-Informed Care involves having an understanding of how past trauma (including developmental trauma such as childhood abuse) impacts a service user's current behaviour, mental health and physical health.
