Trauma Informed Care: Caring for the Whole Person

During these past Olympics, the power of Triggers was felt as the World watched Simone Biles bravely put her mental health above all else. Millions supported her, while others failed to see and understand how Triggers could stop the World’s Best Gymnast.

Events throughout our lives, both positive and negative, play a significant role in how we engage with the world around us. Trauma-Informed Care acknowledges the need to understand a person’s life experiences in order to deliver effective care. It has the potential to improve engagement, treatment adherence, health outcomes, as well as provider and staff wellness. This critical realization lead to the development of F-Tag 699: Trauma-informed Care.

During this training we will explore how understanding a person’s trauma history aide in creating person-centered care plans and reduce re-traumatization. You will be able to recognize signs of trauma and Adverse Childhood Events, apply the 6 Principles of a Trauma-Informed Environment and even how to avoid Secondary Trauma.  CNA’s will be required to test to receive certification.
