Fundamentals of Trauma-Informed Care

Hanna Boys Center Auditorium

Dear Family,

We're excited to be offering a whole slate of trainings starting in mid-January, led by internationally-renowned expert Robert Macy and his team from the International Trauma Center. Register before Santa arrives for best pricing.

In TIC 101 and 102, our introductions to trauma-informed systems of care, we pay particular attention to how we were sanctioned and rewarded as children. Our society strives to control children and youth at all costs through the consistent use of coercion, restraint, seclusion, and isolation. We propose a different approach. These seminars provide an overview of Trauma-informed Care and Resiliency-focused approaches designed to address the needs of trauma-exposed populations and their interactions with service providers. Participants will acquire these skills and elements of trauma-informed care:

  • Identify the factors and stressors that can create potentially traumatic events (PTE) for children and adults
  • Observe the external signs of trauma in themselves and in the children they care for
  • Learn what trauma does to the biology of a human being
  • Examine personal experiences relating to dysregulated children
  • Cue client reactions as a means of guidance towards healing and recovery
  • Recognize social skill development, brain development, and emotional development for the specific service recipient populations of the training group
  • Develop customized concrete processes for healing and recovery
  • Formulate personal nervous system distress in the face of client’s trauma responses
  • Master personal acute safety plans
  • Utilize de-escalation strategies to build safety-calming-connectedness in the milieu
  • Develop customized concrete processes for healing and recovery
  • Apply specific pro-social engagement behaviors to field work
