About the Event
Trauma can be confusing to define, complex to understand and frustrating to respond to. Yet, trauma is a primary cause of mental health conditions, substance use, behavior health referrals and physical health struggles throughout the lifespan. This session provides a solid grounding in common concepts so that traumatic experiences are accurately defined; trauma-linked behaviors identified, and trauma-responsive skills taught. Trauma produces extraordinary stress in the brain. This overwhelming exposure to physiological stress results in alterations in brain structure and function. Understanding these specific consequences of trauma significantly informs interventions and inspires new approaches for the focus and the goal of interacting with people with traumatic experiences – building resilience.
For educators, parents, coaches, law enforcement, faith-based community members, family and youth serving organizations.
