  1. Review the present state of knowledge about trauma in children and youth.
  2. Establish the evaluation tools for traumatic events and the pertinent side effects.
  3. Analyse the advantages and disadvantages of various intervention approaches.
  4. Understand and put into practice the components of the ARC model.


Healthcare workers in the field of mental health often face the challenge of detecting children and teenagers who are victims of multiple traumas and of figuring out what kind of help they need. Contrary to the victims of accidental trauma limited to a specific time and space, victims of multiple traumas have been exposed to traumatic events (typically negligence, sexual or physical abuse) over a longer period of time and, most often, by a person of significance to the child. These cases often refer to post-traumatic stress disorder.

In this workshop, the trainer will review the individual, familial, social and cultural factors that have influence over the appearance of long term side effects following repeated trauma; they will present, in detail, the Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency Model; (ARC, Kinniburgh, Blaustein, Spinazzola & van der Kolk, 2005). This model is inspired by attachment and resilience theories, and puts into practice psychoeducational and cognitive behavioural techniques, focusing on strengths and adaptation capabilities of the child and their family. This course is intended for healthcare workers who wish to identify and serve youth with a history of multiple abuse.
