Imagine Childhood Trauma and Resilience Conference with Kean University

 

Many children experience trauma.  Some traumas are ongoing like abuse or illness, while others are sudden and episodic like an act of violence or a natural disaster or death.  All of these traumas are experienced as a loss for children: a loss of safety, a loss of identity, or a loss of a relationship.  Despite the trauma, children can learn to become more resilient and adaptable to change if given the right support. How can we best support them in their homes, communities and schools?  This conference will address the many issues children and families deal with when experiencing a trauma. Please join researchers and practitioners in the field for an invigorating, educational day.

This all-day conference held at Kean University in Union, will explore topics including the clinical application of developmental theory as applied to childhood and adolescent loss as well as the cognitive behavioral and gestalt approaches to supporting grieving youth. Participants will also learn how to incorporate meaning-making, continuing bonds, problem solving and perspective building into interventions for supporting grieving children.

Andy McNeil, MA, will be the conference presenter.  Mr. McNeil is a nationally recognized educator in childhood grief support and interventions and has served as the CEO of The National Alliance for Grieving Children. He is the author, along with Pamela Gabbay, of Understanding and Supporting Bereaved Children: A Practical Guide for Professionals.

The conference will be held on June 8th from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM, with registration beginning at 8:30 AM.  $99 registration fee includes lunch.  Student discounts available as well as discounts for members of the Imagine volunteer community and the Kean University faculty and staff. Continuing education credits will be available for no additional charge through Kean University Counselor Education Department. Please contact mandi@imaginenj.org or 908-264-3100 for more information, or to register go to www.imaginenj.org/workshop2018.
