4:15 Closing remarks

Trauma is now recognized as a near universal experience of individuals with behavioral health issues often resulting in a complex array of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.   Through understanding of the latest trauma research and careful translation into practice, we can help trauma survivors experience healing, resiliency and hope.  


This training coordinates trauma informed care into a framework that can be used by anyone working with victims of trauma.  It includes the three stages of positive trauma resolution (re-experience, release, and re-organize) and the five resilience factors found in people who move beyond their traumatic experiences.  


Trauma’s effect on brain chemistry, development, and relationships are explored, and since trauma is processed and stored in nonverbal parts of the brain, expressive, relational and sensory based will be identified to benefit clients of all ages and ability levels.  

Service plan goals and objectives will also be presented to assist in bringing this treatment to your current work.
