UKTC Insight Series

The UK Trauma Council’s mission is to radically improve the help children and young people receive across the UK following traumatic events and experiences. We want to see a world where people and communities are knowledgeable, skilled and confident in nurturing and protecting those who have experienced trauma.

To support our aim, we have developed a live webinar series providing expert insights into important trauma-related areas affecting children and young people.

What’s on in February

Trauma and Adolescents: A Socially Embedded Approach

This webinar will provide an introduction to the significance of the overlapping neurobiological, psychological and social changes that characterise adolescent development. It will look at the ways in which developmental opportunities can become overwhelming challenges when exacerbated by co-occurring risk factors such as family conflict, parental mental health problems, early traumatic experiences, and bullying.

Particular attention will be given to contribution of relational approaches to minimising the impact of these risks and the need to extend the reach of evidence-based interventions to address the interpersonal trauma experienced by many neuro-divergent adolescents.
