FLI Module 2 - Infant Trauma

FLI Module 2 - Infant Trauma
Attachment at a biological level means survival. Early attachment relationships, however, can oftentimes be a source of trauma themselves, rendering infants and toddlers unable to process and/or integrate what is occurring. What happens when protective factors are unavailable to buffer poor caregiving experiences, and those caregiving experiences become the developmental context and norm for infants and toddlers?

Module 2 in this series focusses on how trauma in infancy differs from adult trauma in many important ways. Infants have limited abilities to remove themselves from stressful situations, to understand or even to manage their emotional states; they are thus entirely dependent on their caregivers to recognize and meet their needs. It is essential to remember that preverbal infants and young children, despite their inability to express what they are going through, can still understand a lot more than they can say.
