Though statistics vary, there is a consensus in the field that a large percentage of consumers of mental health services are trauma survivors, and that their trauma experiences shape their responses to engagement and treatment. Trauma Informed Care is an engagement technique that recognizes the presence of trauma histories and acknowledges the role of trauma in the lives of survivors. This training offers an overview of the new diagnostic criteria from the DSM-5 of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other trauma-related disorders, as well as other symptoms and behaviors that can result from trauma. Assessment, safety issues, medication and symptom management are explored in case management activities and on a programmatic level. The training also explores vicarious trauma and its impact on staff supporting persons with trauma histories. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of Trauma-Informed Care and skills to support clients healing and recovering from trauma.
