Trauma-informed care continues to grow as the standard and expectation across multiple settings. As this expectation grows it becomes more and more important that all of healthcare keep the importance of this term in the forefront of treatment. It is not merely enough to know about PTSD to call yourself trauma informed. It is just as important to understand the small, nuanced ways you can truly create a safe space in any healthcare setting. In this training, we will look at multiple strategies for understanding the role of the environment, protocol, paperwork, and other sensory concerns to be thoughtful of in every setting. This training will put a focus on the opportunities we have to create safety in every transaction with the people we serve. There will be special attention given to role of the provider in paying attention to details and understanding how to create a safe space for patients to truly feel seen and understood. Each provider can create space for process, respect each individual story, and truly provide trauma-informed care
The Trauma-Informed Care training is being co-sponsored by the Illinois Association for Behavioral Health (IABH). The content of this session will benefit all behavioral health providers, and IABH will be providing 3.5 continuing education hours for completing this training. Additional details are available on the registration page.
