About This Webinar

Trauma-informed care (TIC) has become a widely recognized paradigm that promotes creating safe spaces for individuals who have experienced trauma, while also reducing the likelihood that accessing services would cause re-traumatization. But what exactly is trauma and the trauma-informed care framework?

  • Recognize trauma symptoms in your staff and strategies to prevent burnout and vicarious trauma.
  • Determine what to consider when beginning to implement a trauma-informed framework for your organization.
