Understand trauma and its impact

As health and human services continue to evolve, it is critical to understand the impact of traumatic experiences on a person’s world view and adaptive behaviors. Using stories that intersect and highlight what research has shown to be true, you will experience a highly engaging and experiential exploration of the impact of trauma.  In addition, you will receive post‐workshop pre‐recorded materials, so you can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the variety of experiences that can be termed – “traumatic” and how those experiences often manifest differently in each person.  

Specific learning objectives that are explored include: 

  1. Describe the effects of Trauma on a person’s worldview, brain development, adaptive behaviors, and triggers.
  2. Discuss Trauma Types: Historical, Identity (Gender, Racial, Historical, Orientation, and on), Community, Interpersonal and Family.
  3. Analyze the Impacts of Traumatic Stress on a person’s cognition and affect.
  4. Recognize effective healing interventions, client education skills, and approaches. 

This course consists of one live online session followed by four pre-recorded modules with post work. You must complete all work to receive the full CEUs.
