Course description

With approximately 70% of Americans experiencing a traumatic event in their lifetime and up to 20% of these individuals developing clinical PTSD, it’s undeniable that trauma informed care is a crucial skill for mental health clinicians. Eleanor and Lauren combine their varied and unique experiences in trauma treatment and education to help us understand many facets of trauma-sensitive care.    

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Definition and types of trauma

  • Prevalence of trauma

  • Impacts of trauma on diverse populations

  • Mitigation of trauma

  • Fostering resilience through body-based practices

  • Foundational skills necessary to ethically provide trauma-sensitive care

  • Secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout

  • Self-care for social workers
