Description


This Live Webinar Training is funded through Mecklenburg County ReCAST, a SAMHSA-funded grant initiative.

Trauma is a near universal experience of individuals who seek assistance from providers. Addressing trauma is now the expectation, not the exception, in community agencies. It is equally vital that we understand and build resilience in conjunction with understanding the impact of trauma. The combination of an individual’s experience of trauma and resilience impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social and spiritual. Workers and community providers are expected to view the people they serve through the trauma-informed, resilience-oriented lens and to competently intervene in this area. The good news is that trauma is treatable and organizations can become trauma-informed and resilience-oriented in order to best meet the needs of the people they serve and support. This training teaches participants about trauma, its prevalence and impact, including the latest information on trauma and the brain. By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
1. Define trauma and resilience
2. Understand the prevalence and impact of trauma, including understanding findings from the ACE study
3. Be aware of the neuro/bio/psycho/social impact of trauma
