Trauma, particularly in early childhood, affects the developing brain and can result in a range of social, emotional, cognitive behavioural difficulties and changes to the sensory system. These are hard for parents and caregivers to manage.
Complex Trauma can result from:-
- Abuse or Neglect
- Living with an Impaired Care Giver
- Repeated witnessing and enduring of Domestic Abuse
- It can result in a child feeling just like a soldier after the effects of war.
Who will benefit from our service?
- Children specifically under the age of 13 at entry gain the most.
- Children who have experienced Domestic Abuse,
- Living with an Impaired Care Giver,
- Enduring trauma and abuse,
- Numerous placement moves.
- Children with Insecure Attachments and Developmental Trauma Disorder symptoms.
- Children whose chronological age does not match their emotional, social, recreational and educational presentation due to Complex Trauma. A spikey presentation.
- Children who would benefit from non-talking related therapies to calm their high states of hyper-arousal physically, socially and emotionally.
- Since complex trauma affects unconscious portions of the brain, non-talking therapy is highly beneficial to heal and sooth the unconscious, inner world of the child.
