Learn about the basic definition of trauma and what it means to be trauma-informed. Examine how stress and trauma impact the brain and the primary areas of the brain involved with responses to stress. Learn about various types of trauma, i.e. inter-generational, childhood, and complex trauma, and what should be considered when working with Native American clients who have experienced trauma.
A critical condition for developing a trauma-informed system is for all staff members, including professionals, support staff and administrators, to have a comprehensive understanding of the effects and complexity of trauma, its potential behavioral manifestations and principles for addressing the needs of traumatized clients. Training is essential in the process of transforming an agency to become trauma-informed. This three-part webinar series covers a wide variety of topics and provides you with strategies for interacting with traumatized clients.
