Cyber Trauma Courses for Parents and Professionals

What is a cybertrauma course and who is it for?

Cybertrauma is a theoretical integration of child psychotherapy, psychobiology and neuroscience that takes account of the myriad of interactions with cyberspace and the traumas that can result with and from this medium. Specialist areas to be covered are graphic images, cyber-bullying in all formats and sexual issues and/or abuse e.g. CSA/CSE. The research is currently highlighting deficits of knowledge with professionals who work with children and adolescents due to the speed of ever advancing technology. This is a new and emerging field of study and one that takes account of all aspects of screen and electronic sources of connection and abuse. This is synthesized to provide a theory of trauma, abuse, recovery and resilience. This is a must for anyone who cares for, works with a child or anyone with any internet ready device

Simply put this is a course about the issues, perils and pitfalls children and young people face in the online world, whether that be consoles, computers or smartphones.

What you can expect to learn on this course:

  • What “cybertrauma” is? (definitions and explanations).
  • Real life issues and trauma versus Cybertrauma (What happens when a person is “traumatised”).
  • What “attachment theory” is, why do you need to know this and why this is important to know when using devices.
  • Why attachment theory is different to being attached (like glue) to a device and why addiction is not necessarily the correct diagnosis for your child’s device use
  • Introduction to the Polyvagal communication system (How and why we communicate in cyberspace in the way we do).
  • Terminology & behaviours in the online world.
  • Ethics and the law.
  • How to’s and advice about dealing with the events and incidents.

For Practitioners: Psychopathology of internet behaviours, Case studies, Ethical dilemmas and how this affects your practice:

For example: What do you do if a child has Tinder on their smartphone?/What if a client asks to record you in session?/What about Photos of work with a client?- Ethical guidelines, best practice and advice.

E-safety leaflets will be provided and a handy guide to take home with you.
