This free illustrated guidebook for professionals and carers working with children and young people accompanies the Childhood Trauma and the Brain animation. Key principles supported by both science and practice are discussed to help us think about our approaches to resilience and recovery.
Childhood Trauma and the Brain
What have scientists learned from studying the brain about the impact of traumatic experiences, like abuse and neglect? The Childhood Trauma and the Brain animation with the accompanying guidebook, videos and articles provides information from neuroscience research for frontline professionals and carers. Learn what neuroscience can tell us, the implications for practice, and the link between childhood trauma and mental health problems. We hope these resources will provide a new way to understand and help the children and young people in our care.
