ACEs & Developmental Trauma Part 2 Webinar

ACEs & Developmental Trauma Part 2: Healing Through Adoption and Permanency Journeys with Kathy Soden & Sylvia Gibbons, Adoption Council of Ontario PACT Team & DTAA Members

Intended audience: pre-adoptive families, adoptive, kinship and customary care families, adult adoptees and the professionals who support those on adoption and permanency journeys

Objectives:

  • focus on the understanding of developmental trauma through the lens and core issues of adoption and permanency journeys
  • emphasize the importance of truly understanding children, youth and adults and their "internal working models", so that parenting, child welfare work and therapeutic interventions can be set up for success
  • expand on the introductory discussion of prevention and healing from part 1 and address what can help children, youth and adults who have been impacted by developmental trauma from the perspective of:
    • pre-adoptive families
    • adoptive, kinship & customary care families
    • adult adoptees
    • professionals 
  • address the importance of understanding developmental trauma and the lens of adoption by all of the systems (child welfare, education, health - physical and mental, family law, justice, etc) that work with people and families on adoption and permanency journeys
  • provide relevant resources and further learning opportunities
