Respecting Complexity: A Multidisciplinary, Trauma-Centered Approach to Assessment, Treatment, and Care, Using Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) to Help a Child and His Family Navigate the Impact of T
The Center for Connection's integrative, collaborative network of professionals represents a unique model in direct response to the needs expressed by individuals and families. This approach alleviates the tension of running around to far too many different locations, professionals, and specialists. By collecting the best of the best in various fields and offering them all in one location, the Center greatly improves the overall quality of care each person receives, while significantly reducing the stress and anxiety on the individual and family.
In this presentation, Center for Connection clinicians who specialize in occupational, play, educational, and marriage and family therapy, will demonstrate how a collaborative approach supports the social and emotional development of a child and his family through the IPNB framework. They will review the case history and share steps used to guide the family through challenges present in everyday life. As the family and child wade through the multiple layers of attachment, educational, and acute traumas, the team helps them to understand how these experiences have impacted the child's learning, regulation, relationships, and overall development. Together, the team actively learns and engages with the complexity of this case, with the focus centered on regulation, connection, healing, and hope.
