Balancing Trauma Informed Practice and Provider Self Care (Closed Event)

Trauma-informed care is a preventive framework that recognizes the pervasiveness of trauma particularly among individuals with substance use disorders (SUD) and other psychosocial problems. Further, what is often given less attention is the impact that indirect or vicarious trauma can have on providers. For instance, the current environment where opioid overdoses occur in unprecedented numbers and frequency can impact provider‚Äôs mental health critical to their own wellbeing and ability to support traumatized individuals. 

This interactive course will define trauma and impact, core principles of trauma-informed care, and includes application opportunities for practice in case scenarios. Discussion will identify the link between toxic stress and trauma, and how it can activate the fight or flight response. Content will review trauma-informed strategies effective for interactions including screening and assessment, provider self-care to practice while providing trauma informed care, and positive expectancy to support and help build resiliency.
