Childhood neglect has been widely evidenced to contribute to the long term developmental needs of children and can have a lasting impact on their Health outcomes including their mental health. There is considerable evidence that supports the view that these early life experiences increase the likelihood of chronic and/or extreme stress in childhood, referred to as early life stress, which is associated with a wide range of long-term effects on their development.

Children can be supported holistically to recover from childhood neglect and trauma and this workshop offers food for thought on this very topic. Using alternative therapies can offer an opportunity for families to support their children and begin to recover from the traumatic events of early trauma using complementary therapies. Supporting children with good nutrition that can offer support to achieve better outcomes as children make their transition in their new life.
