Description: This workshop will address the issue of trauma as it affects individual clients, clinicians, and systems of care. A history of trauma is extremely common in individuals presenting for mental health and/or substance use disorders treatment. Attention to trauma issues occurs on a continuum ranging from trauma-informed to trauma-sensitive to trauma-integrated. A trauma-informed approach seeks to raise awareness about trauma among all behavioral and physical health caregivers. A trauma-sensitive approach promotes screening and treatment methods that take past trauma into account without re-traumatizing the client and fully integrates trauma issues into all aspects of care delivery especially through the use of specific models used to treat trauma. This training will review key concepts and core principles of trauma-informed care and trauma-sensitive care and will explore how individuals can integrate these principles into their care as Behavioral & Physical Health Providers, Programs, Agencies, and related Systems of Care.
