(Approximate Time Commitment: 0.25 hours)
Thank you for your interest and for visiting this page. I am Colby Pearce and I am a Clinical Psychologist in Australia. I have been working with and talking to children and young people recovering from a tough start to life, and adults who interact with them in various roles, for almost twenty-eight years. My experience affords me the opportunity to speak to the experience of children and young people who are recovering from abuse, neglect, and/or family trauma, and their parents and other adults who engage with them in various roles.
Importantly, my experience provides a basis for me to help adults with a caring concern for these children and young people better understanding and respond therapeutically to them.
In this short presentation I was invited by Tweddle Child and Family Health Service to speak to the infant’s experience of early trauma. I delivered this presentation in June 2022 in Melbourne as part of Infant Mental Health Week. Click the link below to access the presentation slides and text associated with them. I hope you find them useful in your interactions and work with children and young people recovering from a tough start to life, and adults who engage with them in various roles.
