More about this training:

This workshop presents an integrative framework for understanding and communicating across systems about how trauma can affect a child, a family, and a system. The framework was developed by Chandra Ghosh Ippen, Christopher Layne, and Bob Pynoos of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) and is adapted from core trauma concepts identified and ratified by the NCTSN Core Curriculum on Childhood Trauma Task Force.  The Ripple Effect translates complex trauma concepts using metaphor, visual models, common language, and rich case example and shows:

1) the domains of functioning affected by trauma;

2) the mechanisms through which trauma affects development, and

3) intervention pathways.
