Trauma Informed Care is a philosophy steeped in understanding the prevalence and impact of trauma on both those we serve and those we employ. Trauma Informed Care is a paradigm which understands and believes that persons can heal from traumatic experiences and that healing occurs within a context of relationship. Central to this philosophy is changing the perspective from "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?" Adopting this compassionate approach is not accomplished through any single technique or checklist, rather a cultural change at an organizational level. This session will focus on the current thinking of Trauma and the prevalence and impact of Trauma on individuals as well as systems of care.
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will:
- Develop a shared language around Trauma and Trauma Informed Care
- Create curiosity surrounding the benefits of developing a Trauma Informed Culture
- Understand the 3 Es of Trauma and how individuals are impacted by traumatic events
- Identify the 4 Rs of Trauma and how to apply within your organization
- Learn the Six Guiding Principles of Trauma Informed Care
- Gain an understanding of how a Trauma Informed Culture can drive and improve outcomes
