The Aftermath of Trauma in Children and Adolescents: What We Can Expect and What We Can Do

February 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:15 pm

$25.00 - $55.00

NEW LOCATION: Loveland Receptions

Speaker: Erica Pearl Messer, Psy.D.

When children and adolescents present for treatment, trauma may or may not be a reason they or their parents sought intervention. It is important for clinicians to understand how trauma can impact various areas of functioning at different stages of life. A history of trauma may affect how well a child or adolescent responds to treatment. This presentation will review the literature related to the cumulative effects of trauma as well as how certain child and adolescent mental health treatments have been able to demonstrate significant reductions in symptoms of PTSD.

Dr. Erica Pearl Messer is a licensed clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She began her career at Cincinnati Children’s in 2004 where she and her colleagues formed the Trauma Treatment Training Center. She specializes in treating children, particular those considered at-risk who have experienced child abuse and neglect. She is currently the Principal Investigator for a study evaluating Child Adult Relationship Enhancement with foster parents, a trauma-informed training she co-developed to assist parents in improving relationships and managing challenging behaviors. Dr. Messer is also a leader in training and researching Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Dr. Messer has conducted over 200 local, national and international workshops for professionals working with trauma. As the training director of the Mayerson Center for Safe & Healthy Children, her mission is to conduct research and disseminate evidence-based treatments for families exposed to trauma and violence, maternal depression and children in foster care.
