“Trauma-Informed Care: A Change in Perspective”

SAMSHA’s National Center for Trauma Informed Care promotes trauma-informed practices in the delivery of services to people who have experienced violence and trauma and are seeking support for recovery and healing.  This presentation will address the prevalence of trauma and suggest techniques to reduce the likelihood of re-traumatization. Participants will learn what trauma is, how it affects individuals – psychologically, developmentally, and neurobiological. Self-regulation strategies will be explored. 

At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Define trauma and discuss its prevalence in society.
  • Explain the effect trauma has on the brain.
  • Discuss four strategies to reduce the likelihood of re-traumatization.
  • Describe two ways trauma affects people developmentally, psychologically and physiologically.
  • Develop two action steps to implement trauma-informed practices in their work.
