"Re-Attaching" the Brain: A Developmental Treatment Approach for Addressing Sexual Behavior Problems in Youth
Workshop Description: "Re-Attaching" the Brain: A Developmental Treatment Approach for Addressing Sexual Behavior Problems in Youth
Abstract: Research has shown a connection between early trauma experiences, attachment difficulties and disrupted neurological development in children. The effect of these early developmental experiences can have a significant impact on specific brain functions such as affect regulation, language processing, and executive functioning. Participants of this workshop will learn about applying research on the neurological impact of early trauma and attachment experiences to the treatment of sexual behavior problems. A developmental treatment model for treating problematic sexual behavior will be presented followed by discussion on how this approach impacts treatment planning and risk assessment.
