An event every week that begins at 8:30 am on Friday, repeating until April 29, 2016


Understanding Attachment and Trauma

The Core Competency on Attachment and Trauma is a two day training that promotes learning through lecture, group discussion, vignettes, video, web-based resources and print materials.

Participants will:  

  •  Increase their knowledge of supporting a child’s attachment to their parents and primary caregivers,
  • Increase their understanding about how traumatic events and chronic stress lead to children having trauma triggers in seemingly unrelated experiences,
  • Increase their understanding of how trauma triggers can interfere with emotional, behavioral and social self-regulation of children,
  • Increase their knowledge of the components of resiliency and healing for children.

The Trainers

Eileen Fair, LCSW and Judy Muller, LCSW have been working with families for over 35  years. Their interest in Infant Mental Health , attachment and trauma precipitated their participation in a Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) Learning Collaborative taught by Patricia VanHorn, PhD and Alicia Lieberman, PhD through the National Childhood Traumatic Stress Network(NCTSN). Since then, in addition to using  CPP in their practices,  they have trained clinicians in Maine in Child-Parent Psychotherapy . This Core Competency course was developed from the CPP training manual and has been used to train other providers, case managers and program administrators.
