Full course description
Addressing trauma is now the expectation, not the exception, in behavioral health organizations. Given this difficult time, It is equally vital that we understand and build resilience in conjunction with understanding the impact of trauma. The combination of an individual’s experience of trauma and resilience impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, and spiritual. The good news is that trauma is treatable and organizations can become trauma-informed and resilience-oriented in order to best meet the needs of the those they serve and those they serve with. This training teaches participants about trauma, its prevalence, and impact, including the latest information on trauma and the brain. It will explore the connection between behavior and trauma and identifies resilience-oriented trauma-informed ways to intervene with all those we serve. Participants learn what being trauma-informed looks like and key strategies for implementing this approach as well as highlighting the need for self-care when doing this work.
