Brain functioning … Brain development … interpersonal neurobiology. These are all terms infiltrating the therapeutic field. This presentation will focus on the basics of trauma and how it affects the developing brain. We will discuss how brain development must inform therapeutic practice and how a basic understanding of the brain can aid any clinician in achieving a more complete practice.
