Trauma-informed care is not just for the behavioral health professional, but rather a client-centered approach that should be used by all.
This webinar is geared toward providers who would like foundational information about trauma informed care and how to apply this approach with their interactions with people they serve, including the Indigenous population. Trauma informed care is not just for the behavioral health professional, but rather a client centered and compassionate approach that benefits the entire healthcare organization and the communities they serve. In this webinar we will cover the basic tenets of trauma informed care, understand the impact of trauma, recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma, as well as learn some strategies on to how to avoid re-traumatizing individuals.
