Sensory Strategies: Trauma-Informed Care and Practices Webinar Series
This session was part two in a three-part webinar series on Trauma-Informed Care and Practices. In this session, participants learned more about sensory strategies.
Dr. Tami DeCoteau, a national expert on trauma-informed care, offered insight to providers and educators interested in gaining a deeper understanding of trauma, including content on historical trauma and adverse childhood experiences. The science of trauma-informed care compels us to look more deeply into the human physiological process and understand how DNA provides evidence of intergenerational trauma. Recent research has shown that emotional trauma often affects the human nervous system long-term. Study of epigenetic DNA demonstrates that the substance use disorder need for self-regulation via alcohol or drugs is actually a physiological process and not a moral choice.
