Trauma-Informed Care in Clinical Settings
Research shows that the effects of trauma are long-lasting, and they have detrimental impacts on individuals and communities. While providers in medical, behavioral, and social services strive to be trauma-informed when caring for clients, it is also crucial to be attuned to the impact on service providers in providing care to traumatized populations. This became even more critical during the COVID-19 pandemic which was a community trauma for everyone suddenly impacted by changes in daily functions, and additionally, acutely traumatic for populations that are more adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, learning the principles and practices of trauma-informed care is vital to emotional and physical health not only for our clients but also for providers.
Trauma-Informed Care starts with us. As a community, we are dealing with social and physical distancing, which has created anxiety among broad levels of population. This community trauma impacts individuals, families, and communities in many ways, and on many levels. Incorporating knowledge of trauma can help ensure physical, psychological, and emotional safety for professionals and create opportunities to rebuild a sense of empowerment and autonomy for individuals and communities.
This training navigates the impact of anxiety and emotional responses to our client, through a trauma-informed lens. Join us as we talk about identifying triggers, coping skills that may assist in handling the negative input of social media/media, setting boundaries while working remotely, and staying physically and emotionally healthy through it all.
