'What Works' - Exposure - Attachment - Relationships - Dr Jackie Amos
About the Speaker: Dr Jackie Amos
Dr Jackie Amos is a child and adolescent psychiatrist and Gestalt psychotherapist. Jackie works at Centacare in the Children’s Services Unit with severely distressed families, where abuse and neglect of children is a central concern. In her doctoral research, Jackie developed two complementary models of the intergenerational transmission of neglect and abuse and the role of trauma in maintaining relationship difficulties. These models were then used to understand the key objectives of treatment for families where the care and protection of the children is compromised, and to consider the mechanism of action of a novel psychotherapy, Parallel Parent and Child Therapy (P-PACT) for these families.
