The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study of the late 1990s launched one of the most important and influential bodies of public health research in the last 50 years. This research has confirmed what many people involved with public behavioral healthcare already knew- that the majority of individuals who participate in behavioral health services have experienced at least one kind of trauma in their lives, and many have experienced multiple traumas. “Trauma Informed Care” is the idea that behavioral health services need to be sensitive to the needs of traumatized individuals and families and designed to address trauma symptoms. This idea is so important that SAMHSA has identified supporting trauma informed approaches as one of their 6 Strategic Initiatives. But many staff in behavioral health organizations have never received specific training on how to adapt their services to respond to the needs of traumatized individuals and families. This 6 hour training will provide an overview of the most important findings of the ACEs research, and practical suggestions of how case managers, therapists, supervisors, and administrators can begin to transform their behavioral health services so that they are trauma informed.
