In this meeting we will review and discuss the Youtube Recording by Liz Powell on Developmental Trauma. Children experiencing developmental trauma can often be labelled as over controlling, naughty, a problem child or even autistic or diagnosed with ADHD. Yet these responses can hold the child back from progressing. Understanding their behaviour from a trauma informed perspective can help. Developmental trauma can repair within relationships with the right interventions at the right time over a long period of time. Liz shares some tips and ideas on how you can repair developmental trauma for your children. Lets discuss how we might apply this learning in our everyday. Please join us for this discussion.

Body Kind Families is an initiative of the Butterfly Foundation designed to help families access and share information around body image and eating disorders. Access their website here. People who suffer from an eating disorder may display symptoms or they may not show any signs or symptoms at all. They may also make significant efforts to conceal their behaviour or they may not even recognise that there is anything wrong or that their eating habits are ‘disordered’. For a parent or carer, this can make the warning signs difficult to identify. What can you do to help?

But what really makes a difference to you and your family? With the collective wisdom in the room lets reflect and see what we can learn from each other!

Food and Trauma - How can we help? Can the right diet help you heal from trauma? How does food affect behaviour or trauma and vica versa? Stress and trauma impacts our nervous system which in turn impacts our capacity to take care of ourselves. How do you help someone who is overwehlemed or where nutrition suggestions are seen as a threat or otherwise engage the flight, flight response system?

TOPIC: DIAGNOSABLE DISABILITIES: EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION WITH NDIS TO SHOW DISABILITY RELATED NEEDS AS DISTINCT FROM PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY Bobbi Cook is a kinship carer and behaviour specialist who has lived the highs and lows of caring for those with a trauma history. She has shared many of her wisdoms with PCA Families in our Youtube recordings and we hope to hear more insights from her about how to succeed with obtaining NDIS support. Bobbi says “But I would say eighty percent of kids in permanent care yes would have a diagnosable disability that is NDIS eligible. If you present your case in a way that shows the disability to the NDIS you do actually qualify for that level of funding… talk about how you actually communicate effectively with the NDIS to actually show the gap between reasonable parental responsibility and disability related needs.” So bring your questions and lets learn from someone with lived experience.

Lying: In seeking the truth from a child who is lying we tend to get more lies! with guest speaker Gregory Nicolau Children who have adverse childhood experiences, in other words the adults around them did not keep them safe, don’t trust the world in general to meet their needs. On the sometimes frequent occasions that they get caught with their ‘hand in the cookie jar’ doing something we adults frown upon, we have a tendency to be reactive rather than curious. The more we seek the truth, the more lies come back at us. Learn to be curios about lying behaviour and save on years of ‘grey hairs’!
