Course Information

DAY ONE: UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF TRAUMA AND SEVERE STRESSORS

The first day of the series is intended to help clinicians and supervisors to build and improve trauma-informed care through development of awareness and understanding of trauma and its effect on individuals. Trauma occurs as a result of violence, abuse, neglect, loss, disaster, war, and other emotionally harmful experiences, and the impact often endures long past the event through a variety of sequelae. Since severe stressors (particularly chronic or prolonged stressors) can often have similar impact as trauma, it is helpful to consider these stressors through a trauma-informed lens. Participants will learn to conceptualize trauma-related symptoms and conditions in a manner that integrates the individual’s trauma history. Participants will learn about the importance of attending to their own well-being as part of trauma-informed care, using ongoing consultation and supervision, respecting the importance of self-care and stress management, and maintaining awareness and responsiveness to secondary traumatic stress. We will also discuss a trauma-informed model for fostering client resilience. The session will include small group discussion exploring ways to care for oneself, our professional communities, and our clients.

This one day course is for 6CE
