The treatment of severely traumatized children and adolescents usually focuses on helping the child and the family to process their traumatic experiences with EMDR therapy. But in some cases children cannot or do not want to participate in EMDR therapy. These children may for example refuse to talk about their traumatic memories, they may dissociate, or may say they have forgotten about it. Cases such as these get stuck and often the trauma doesn’t get processed. We let ‘sleeping dogs lie’, with devastating consequences for future development. But how to help these children?

This workshop would benefit all mental health clinicians

    The Violence & Aggression Symposium is a conference held biennially since 1986 that brings together academics (faculty and staff), government (federal, provincial and municipal) and community representatives, including Indigenous and other community groups/agencies, to enhance knowledge and build partnerships and collaborations aimed at understanding and addressing critical issues related to violent crime and aggressive behaviour. Targeted to frontline workers, as well as clinicians and other professionals and policymakers in corrections, policing, and forensic mental health, the Symposium assists in translating research and theory into practice, provides an opportunity to highlight excellence and innovation within a variety of correctional and criminal justice environments, and promotes the use of evidence-based practice across the criminal justice spectrum — crime prevention agencies, courts, police, corrections, parole — in Saskatchewan, Canada and beyond.

    The 2020 offering will take place for the fourth time at the University of Saskatchewan, June 14-16, 2020, and will feature 4 plenary and 12 concurrent sessions, involving more than 16 local, national and international presenters. Presenters will share their knowledge and experience on an array of topics including assessment, community safety planning, sexual offenders, psychopathy, predictive analytics, management of offenders, offenders with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), missing and murdered Indigenous persons, the weaponization of opioids, and trauma-informed approaches applied to offenders and frontline staff within policing and correctional environments.
