- CAS 101: Childhood Attachment: Relationship Wounds, Styles, and Interventions. When children experience trauma—whether emotional, physical, relational or any other type—it can influence how they view others and the world around them. Children want to know if they are safe, and emotional wounds negate that feeling of safety. In this presentation, Dr. Straub will unpack the attachment styles and guide viewers through ways to help children who have undergone trauma.
- CAS 102: The Effect of Trauma on Childhood Development. Science has revealed that emotional trauma changes brain functioning at the place where the “emotional brain” and “survival brain” meet. This presentation examines recent brain research, emotional trauma in childhood, the effects on the developing person, and long-term psychological risks. Dr. Lord discusses relevant brain structures and the relationship of early childhood emotional trauma on the developing brain, personality, and relationships.

Depending on their developmental stage, children need different responses from counselors and caregivers.
