This practical, interactive workshop will provide a foundation of principles and skills to integrate in clinical and community settings that do not necessarily provide trauma treatment but that nonetheless strive to be trauma informed. The trauma-informed approach can be applied to settings including (but not limited to) Social Services, child welfare agencies, schools, homeless shelters & women's shelters, addiction agencies, clergy & health care settings. The workshop will cover:
Day 1: Fundamentals of Trauma and Attachment
Day 2: Trauma-Informed Care Principles and Skills
