EP13 Invited Address 20 - What Brings Children Into Therapy: A Developmental View - Violet Oaklander, PHD
Original Program Date :
All children are born with the capacity to develop and use all of the aspects of the organism to live healthy, productive, joyful lives. We know that trauma interrupts the healthy development of the child. There also are some very basic developmental aspects that further thwart healthy development. An understanding of these hindrances is the first step toward helping children heal.
- Describe three basic developmental aspects that can affect the child’s development.
- Assess organismic regulation in therapeutic work.
- Describe the healthy development of an infant, prior to interruption.
