Creating Safe Spaces: Understanding the Importance of Trauma-Informed Care


Mar 31, 2019 7:30am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 8:30am

Description

The literature on trauma-informed care, and its impact on daily functioning, is limited. Graduate programs must provide instruction on trauma-informed interventions, and counselors must receive ongoing training specific to trauma-informed care. Counseling must be a safe place for clients to process trauma in the hope of developing resiliency. Knowing the impact trauma has on developmental and cognitive abilities, and the associated challenges, is important for both the client's functioning and their support system.

  • To educate on the recognition and understanding of the impact of childhood trauma on general functioning and learning, in relation to life skills and academics, resulting in participants learning to identify the common symptomology.
  • Participants will be presented with research-based interventions for working with individuals of all ages who suffer from childhood trauma.
  • Participants will learn to synthesize culturally-responsive strategies for creating trauma-sensitive clinics and classrooms for individuals of this special population.
