Childhood Trauma, the Brain and the Social World

10:00 - 11:30 Friday 24th June 2022

About this webinar

It is now well understood that childhood trauma impacts the developing brain. We are learning that such changes can profoundly impact a child’s social world, with important implications for their development and mental health. As professionals, how can we better support young people who have experienced childhood trauma to foster and maintain healthy social relationships?

This webinar​ brings together leading neuroscientists and clinicians from the field of childhood trauma to review the latest research, including findings from a recent NSPCC and ESRC funded study, and consider implications for practice.

There will be automatic subtitles available during this event.
