Trauma-Informed Care Delivery for Clinicians and Peer Support Specialists

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, about 50% of women and 60% of men experience at least one trauma in during their lifetime (2021). This is why trauma-informed care is pivotal in providing excellent care and achieving positive outcomes. Treatment is far less effective when a practitioner or organization is not knowledgeable about trauma, how to address it, and how it affects a person throughout their lifespan.

In this course, you will explore key components to trauma-informed practice, including the move from pathologizing posttraumatic symptoms toward understanding them as adaptive, normal responses. You will examine the core competencies of a trauma-informed practitioner and what it means to apply trauma-informed principles across all stages of treatment. Lastly, you will learn trauma-specific evidence-based best practices.

The goal of this course is to help non-licensed direct care staff, addiction, behavioral health, marriage and family, psychology, and social work professionals in health and human services settings gain knowledge about how to become a trauma-informed treatment provider.
