Dr Haley Peckham will be in Melbourne to Keynote at The Victorian Collaborative Mental Health Nursing Conference (The Collab) and will be available to hold face-to-face workshops for Mental Health Nurses at Victorian Area Mental Health Services.
“Dr Peckham draws on her unique mix of expertise across neuroplasticity, mental health nursing practice and her personal experience of recovery, and weaves together in accessible ways the cutting edge science with invitations to curiosity and empathy for its impact on people with trauma histories”
Bridget Hamilton Director Centre for Mental Health Nursing
Neuroplasticity shows us that our subjective experience shapes our brains in ways that help us adapt to our early environment. This course weaves Bowlby’s Attachment Theory and patterns of attachment, together with Schore’s Affect Regulation Theory showing how biological mechanisms of neuroplasticity are foundational to these complementary theories. Many consumers have a background of complex trauma and disrupted attachment and struggle to regulate their emotions as a result, often turning to addictions or other compulsive self-harming behaviours. This course helps practitioners understand the origins of these difficulties, and how to work compassionately with them, offering both psychoeducation and new experiences of emotional regulation.
