Though statistics vary, there is a consensus in the field that most consumers of mental health services are trauma survivors and that their trauma experiences shape their responses to outreach and services. Trauma Informed Care is an engagement technique that recognizes the presence of trauma histories and acknowledges the role of trauma in the lives of survivors. This training offers an overview of the new diagnostic criteria from the DSM-5 of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other trauma related disorders, as well as other symptoms and behaviors that can result from trauma. Assessment, safety issues, medication and symptom management are explored both on case management and programmatic levels. The training explores vicarious trauma issues.
Attendees will leave with a better understanding of Trauma Informed Care and the clinical skills needed to support persons healing and recovering from trauma histories.
