June 25: Trauma Informed Care 2: Supporting Persons With Trauma Histories
Providing effective, clinically sound services for persons with trauma histories can be complicated.   Well intentioned, but unskilled staff can inadvertently set persons with trauma histories into crisis by over-processing or not understanding how to help persons contain their thoughts when talking about trauma. An understanding of support strategies that offer safety and grounding to persons with trauma histories are covered in this full day training. Aside from the effects of trauma on individuals, trainees will gain a better understanding of the healing process including providing safety, mindfulness and grounding techniques. In addition, the workshop explores self care as an essential component for staff working with trauma histories. Through case studies and role plays, attendees will be able to practice these skills and leave feeling more competent in their understanding of trauma and its aftermath.
