Webinar on 12 March 2020 with Semillas de Apego

This webinar will discuss the impact of trauma on young children and their parents, drawing on experience from Semillas de Apego, a Child-Parent Psychotherapy program developed jointly by the Child Trauma Research Program of the University of California, San Francisco, and Universidad de los Andes, Colombia. Currently being implemented in the Tumaco municipality of Colombia – a region characterised by a high incidence of violence caused by drug trafficking and armed conflict – Semillas de Apego (translation: “seeds of attachment”) aims to mitigate the adverse consequences of trauma and violence for two vulnerable groups: mothers and young children (0-5 years) exposed to violence and forced displacement. Speakers will share the program curriculum and evaluation results and explore how actors working in the context of emergency and displacement can better incorporate an understanding of trauma into their work.
