Follow up to presentation on November 9, 2021. This webinar will explore how trauma is a near universal experience of individuals who seek assistance from providers. Addressing trauma is now the expectation, not the exception, in community agencies. It is equally vital that we understand and build resilience in conjunction with understanding the impact of trauma. The combination of an individual’s experience of trauma and resilience impacts every area of human functioning — physical, mental, behavioral, social and spiritual. Workers and community providers are expected to view the people they serve through the trauma informed, resilience‐oriented lens and to competently intervene in this area. The good news is that trauma is treatable and organizations can become trauma‐informed and resilience‐oriented in order to best meet the needs of the people they serve. This training teaches participants about trauma, its prevalence and impact, including the latest information on trauma and the brain.
