Traumatized Children: Forced Separation of Immigrant Families
Join us for a Live Webinar on October 28, 2021 from 1-3 pm EST
2 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians
This 2- hour webinar discusses the attachment disorders that result from the trauma of enforced family separation. As the number of immigrants has grown exponentially and the separation of immigrant children from their families has expanded with the increase in immigration, many policies have led to attachment disorders in children who are separated from their families.
There will be a summary of the different forms of attachment disorders in general in children and the forms of treatment for addressing these disorders. A case study of a separated child and mother will be presented.
There will be a section on the ethics of treatment for separated children and the legislative policies which may have contributed to the attachment disorders.
This webinar is a good opportunity to learn the basics of identifying and treating attachment disorders in immigrant children.
- Explain the importance of child-parent bonding through early childhood
- Identify the problems of disordered attachment that occur when children are separated from parents in childhood
- Describe the treatment methods that can help resolve the trauma of disordered attachment
- Explain how legislative policies contribute to attachment disorders
