Trauma Informed Care (Free virtual training)

January 23 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Trauma Informed Care is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma Informed Care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

This workshop is designed to assist case managers with identifying the signs of trauma in clients through motivational interviewing techniques and through patterns of behavior they see in clients. In particular, we will be looking at how trauma is being manifested during the public health crisis of COVID-19.

A certificate of completion will be provided to all participants that complete the session. The certificate can be used to apply for CEUs for various disciples such as social work, peer certification and more. This training is free of charge and will be held virtually.
