About The Event

Developmental trauma disorder is a new diagnostic catergory that encapsulates complex trauma, behaviour disorders and reactive attachment

This disorder is often diagnosticated in adolescence and it focuses on the effects that trauma in childhood has had on the adolescent´s development.

Do you work or support Young people who have experience chronic trauma, Childhood Sexual Abuse, neglect, emotinal or psychological abuse?

New research in brain science is showing how early childhood adverse experiences have an effect on adolescents´behaviour, cognitive development, emotional regulation, brain development, attachment and impulsivity.

Young People who have experienced developmental trauma will show different symptoms. Children develop diverse coping mechanisms to deal with distressing experiences. Some withdraw and go inside themselves, no trusting adults, some use substances, other act out.
