Description: Trauma is a near universal experience of children and adults in our communities. A person’s experience of trauma impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social, and spiritual. It is now the expectation that human-serving organizations and their staff view the people they serve through the trauma lens and competently intervene in this area. The good news is that trauma is treatable and organizations can become trauma-informed and wellness and resilience-focused in order to best meet the needs of the people they serve.
This training teaches participants about trauma, its prevalence and impact, including the latest information on trauma and the brain, wellness and resilience. Participants learn about trauma-informed approaches, how trauma impacts the work force and ways to build resilience among vulnerable populations.
By the end of the training, a participant will be able to:
- Explain what trauma is, its prevalence and its effects
- Implement three wellness and resillience-focused, trauma-informed strategies in their daily work
- Describe the connection between trauma and compassion fatigue
Funded and community partners, and MHM regional staff are invited to attend. Anyone who interacts with the community is encouraged to attend this training.
