This is part three in a three part series on Trauma-Informed Care and Practices. In this session, you will learn more about correcting behaviors.

Dr. Tami DeCoteau, a national expert on trauma-informed care, will offer 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.
