About This Event

There are multiple considerations for providers working with child welfare cases, including the identification and treatment of posttraumatic stress symptoms or reactions. This session will discuss the attachment modification of IoWA-PCIT and how this enhancement can support children who have experienced trauma.  Participants will learn the components of a trauma-informed evaluation and how to identify treatment goals within the IoWA-PCIT framework. Ruptures in the relationship are an inevitable part of all parent-child relationships. We will also discuss the importance of repair through the IoWA-PCIT lens to help restore safety and trust, particularly within child welfare cases.

Who should attend? This session is for IoWA-PCIT trainees and graduated IoWA-PCIT clinicians. 

Participants who attend will receive handouts, an agenda, and a certificate of attendance to submit for continuing education credits on their own. 

This event will not be recorded.
