Trauma Informed Care Workshop

A new path for compassionate, evidence-based care.

Trauma Informed Care is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. This course will provide an introduction to Trauma Informed Care providing foundational knowledge and exploring how trauma and adversity impact an individual's experience with healthcare services. Upon completion of this program, the participant will understand the widespread impact of trauma on our patients and caregivers, understand the role trauma informed care plays in engaging our caregivers and patients, be prepared to develop a plan for incorporating trauma informed care into our work place, policies, procedures and practices.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this program the clinician will be able to:
1. Define what trauma-informed care is (and is not)
2. The impact of acute and complex trauma on accessing and engaging in services
3. Redefine behaviors through a trauma lens
4. How service systems, unknowingly, may re-traumatize/activate survivors of complex trauma
5. The principles of trauma informed care and examples for implementing into practice.


This training will benefit a broad range of staff and professionals from education, healthcare, housing, child welfare, early childhood, judicial, community and mental health services as well as for people with lived experience, youth and family advocates. All staff are encouraged to attend including direct service providers, management and office support staff.
