Maggie Kline, MS, LMFT, SEP, SE Faculty – A Heart-Centered Roadmap to Trauma-Proof Our Schools
This webinar will introduce participants to a neuroscience and relationship-based approach to working with children and teens that ameliorates the effects of toxic stress by fostering regulation and empathic relationships. Maggie will focus on the roadmap she has developed that highlights two distinctive requisite paths to interrupt trauma-reactive patterns in kids with developmental trauma. This method is a synergistic application of Somatic Experiencing, Embodied Mindfulness, Polyvagal and Secure Attachment Theory.
1. Participants will learn how to guide children in the development of interoceptive wisdom and sensory-motor awareness through games and activities that give them an experiential sense of self as they explore their inner world and their own arousal cycles in non-threatening ways.
2. Participants will be introduced to “The 8 Essentials of Healthy Attachment” and be able to name these components that mature the ventral branch of the nervous system responsible for healthy social-emotional relationships by repairing deficits resulting from early childhood trauma and systemic oppression.
Open to anyone who works with children, teens, and the inner child of adults suffering from the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences leading to complex trauma. What you will learn can be applied in classrooms and school offices, mental health agencies, private practice, the juvenile justice system, and at by parents at home. Let's start a mental-health movement together!
This webinar is 1 hour 24 minutes long.
