Using Our Knowledge to Provide Trauma Informed Care Treatment Services: A 3-Part Series

Click title to visit our webpage to view recordings & information about our 3-Part Series!  
Trauma is the expectation, rather than the exception, among a majority of the populations referred for behavioral healthcare services with 90% of mental health clients having been exposed to trauma.  We need to presume clients we serve have a history of traumatic stress and exercise "universal precautions" by creating systems of care that are trauma-informed (Hodas, 2005).  In order to avoid the re-traumatization of clients it is necessary for organizations to understand the complexity of trauma.  This 3-part "Trauma Informed Care" hybrid series is designed to raise awareness, education, inform, and move participants from a working knowledge to focusing on the impact of trauma on families and communities and potential treatment mechanisms.  The 3-part series builds upon each session. If you missed a session please, watch recording before attending next session.
