Trauma-Informed Care: Making Peace with the Past with Lisa Kendall
Emotional trauma can affect health and well-being across ones lifespan. Trauma affects individuals, families, and communities by disrupting healthy development, adversely affecting relationships, and contributing to mental health issues including substance abuse, domestic violence, and child abuse.
The good news is that trauma is treatable. You can become trauma-informed and resilience-focused to best meet the needs of the people you serve. The use of person-directed, culturally competent, trauma informed interventions can improve quality of life for people and families seeking your help.
This day-long, interactive workshop will provide you with information, insight, and approaches to assist those who have experienced trauma. You will gain a clear understanding of trauma, trauma dynamics, and the core principles of trauma-informed practice.
This training will enable you to reformulate your daily work practice and ask, What happened to you? rather than, What is wrong with you? You will take away information and resources to help you further explore hope, healing, and well-being for the people and families you serve.
