    UK Trauma Council Insight Series: Trauma and Adolescence: A Socially Embedded Approach

    The UK Trauma Council’s new live webinar series provides expert insights into important trauma-related areas affecting children and young people.

    About this webinar

    This webinar will introduce 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 the 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 neurodivergent adolescents.
