Complex trauma through a trauma-informed lens: Supporting the wellbeing of infants and young children

Author: MICHELE HERVATIN

This resource introduces complex trauma and trauma-informed care, including their importance in supporting the wellbeing and mental health of infants and young children. It explores the possible effects of complex trauma in early childhood (i.e. birth through to five years), and aims to support professionals to use a ‘whole-child’ approach that considers how early life experiences (including trauma) may shape development and behaviour. It also discusses how professionals can connect children and families with services to support resilience and recovery.

The information in this resource is intended to help professionals raise their awareness of complex trauma and its presentation. The practice reflection questions are to help professionals further explore the issues presented, reflect on their current practice and consider opportunities where a trauma-informed perspective may be useful in supporting the children in their practice.
