Presentation Details

Summary

Trauma is now recognized as a near universal experience of individuals with behavioral health issues often resulting in a complex array of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.  Through understanding of the latest trauma research and careful translation into practice, we can help trauma survivors experience healing, resiliency, and hope.  This training coordinates trauma informed care into a framework that can be used by anyone working with victims of trauma.  It includes the three stages of positive trauma resolution (re-experience, release, and re-organize) and the five resilience factors found in people who move beyond their traumatic experiences.  Trauma’s effect on brain chemistry, development, and relationships are explored, and since trauma is processed and stored in nonverbal parts of the brain, expressive, relational, and sensory based will be identified to benefit clients of all ages and ability levels.  Service plan goals and objectives will also be presented to assist in bringing this treatment to your current work. 

Objectives

Participants will be able to identify and address: 

  • The centrality of relationships in human growth and development, how the quality of relationships affects brain development and the healing power of empathic connection. 
  • The impact of trauma on brain development, attachment, and developmental milestones. 
  • Cultural context and its impact physically, psychologically, and behaviorally 
  • Trauma induced co-occurring disorders 
  • The three stages of positive trauma resolution and how to address them with survivors. 
  • The five resilience factors found in people who overcome and do not recreate their traumatic experiences.
