From Trauma to Trust – inspiring change and support

The Centre of Excellence in Child Trauma will be holding the national conference From Trauma to Trust on the 29th November in Coventry.

The conference provides straight-talking solutions for people supporting vulnerable children. The conference is aimed at professionals working with children who have difficulties relating to trauma, however therapeutic parents are more than welcome too. There will be a variety of talks supporting and overcoming trauma from leading experts.

Sarah Naish, therapeutic parent and best-selling author and Sarah Dillon, attachment therapist and child trauma psychotherapist, will be discussing Truth, Lies and the ‘Memory Carousel’. This will cover issues such as children’s memory, why false allegations happen and what to do about this.

Sally Donovan, adopter and author, will then be discussing The Lost Years. Sally will be speaking on trauma, adolescence and creating ambition for vulnerable young people. She will be delving into the practicalities to consider when children become teenagers.

Louise Bomber, specialist teacher, therapist and DDP certified practitioner, will be speaking about The Human Bridge to Recovery – Settling to Learn. Louise focuses on the issue of children who have experienced trauma being misunderstood due to their behaviour. She will explain how we should be combatting this by updating our policies and practices in schools.
