Contact us at email@example.com
The emergence of COVID-19 and consequent variants have increased rates of trauma and stress to levels that most of us have not experienced. The consequent impact on communities of color have exacerbated existing life challenges and the potential for substance use and mental health problems.
Still, providers need to be equipped to address the traumatic impact of the current environment for individuals in care. This training will look at historical periods of public health crisis, the impacts of COVID-19 pandemic and intersecting factors that increase trauma and stress in communities, and concepts and application of trauma informed strategies for care.
