Becoming Trauma Informed – There’s nothing WRONG with them!
This training increases trauma awareness for those working with justice impacted individuals and their family members. This introduction to trauma informed care will help us become more aware of the effects of trauma in the lives of those we serve. By better understanding the effects of abuse, trauma and other experiences contributing to physical and mental health we develop greater understanding of typical behaviors and reactions. This training provides information about the lives involved in the justice system, the process of trauma, and its effects. Together we will learn about the pervasiveness of violence in the world and in the lives of the system impacted. We will learn the definitions of violence, trauma, and being “trauma informed”.
