Trauma-Informed Care
Trauma-Informed Care is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma-Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers in a socio-cultural context.

Becoming “trauma-informed” means recognizing that people often have many different types of trauma in their lives. People who have been traumatized need support and understanding from those around them. Often, trauma survivors can be re-traumatized by well-meaning caregivers and community service providers.

This webinar provides a foundational knowledge about trauma and the needs of trauma survivors with a specific focus on stabilization. Participants will develop the necessary skills to work with trauma survivors in an inclusive trauma-informed approach.

Finally, participants- regardless of their role within the organization- will be able to view agency systems and clients through a new trauma-informed perspective and implement strategies, policies and protocols to create and maintain a trauma-informed organization.
