A child’s psychological recovery from experiences of trauma, loss and other adverse experiences is often dependent on their network of supportive and nurturing relationships. Mental health difficulties can be exacerbated by lack of access to support mechanisms that help children make sense of what has happened to them. A GPs role is often pivotal in supporting the establishment of these networks, particularly for children who are socially and economic isolated or who have problematic relationships with the adults in their lives.
This webinar examines frameworks that GPs use to remain curious about the circumstances of children who have been affected by trauma, while establishing support networks that assist in recovery.
