  • Use of Fairy Tales in Working with Children of Trauma (April 2018)

    Dates:

    Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

    Location:

    The Leona Group, 2123 University Park Drive, Okemos, MI 48864

    Description:

    The Brothers Grimm recorded original folktales that included incest and abuse of children, resonant themes for traumatized children. Fairy tales speak directly to inner pressures of children’s psychological and emotional sense of self in ways that children unconsciously understand. Fairy tales embrace the serious inner struggles of traumatized children and offer creative solutions to those difficulties. This empowers children, offers them a more secure sense of self, body integrity, and confidence. Understanding the nature of children’s enjoyment and use of fairy tales gives an appreciation for the needs and coping strategies of children to negotiate painful experiences, embrace relationships and find meaning in life. When children are told fairy tales, they are given permission to explore the dark side of their lives and find creative resolutions to their intense anxieties and concerns. Anxieties and their derivatives are often core conflicts addressed in fairy tales. Fairy tales, then, provide children solutions in a reassuring cohesive structure and predictable happy endings not often found simply through play. We will visit fairy tales and utilize discussion to highlight these themes for traumatized children.

ACEs can affect individuals, organizations, and communities across both public and private domains, in clinical, educational, and law enforcement settings. Understanding ACE effects can help us as professionals and individuals begin to work around a common goal of preventing the accumulation of ACEs and moderating their effects. In this workshop, you will learn about the ACE Study and the impact on oneself and the community. You will discuss the implications that exposure to trauma in childhood can have on your health. In addition, you will learn about the important connections between neurobiology, epigenetics, ACEs, and resilience.
