Discuss trauma related disorders including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); complex trauma; reactive attachment disorder; and disinhibited social engagement disorder. Review best practices for working with these youth such as building the relationship; meeting basic needs; motivating youth; and increasing the core competencies of self-esteem, communications, and coping skills. Explore treatment approaches and evidence-based practices for working with youth who have trauma-related disorders. Review cognitive and behavioral techniques in supporting youth impacted by trauma to develop physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioral self- regulation skills.
