Trauma-Informed Care: Implications for Clinicians and Peer Support Specialists

Green Clock Hours: 1.25 - 1.50

A trauma-informed approach to behavioral health 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 an individual 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 content in this course is applicable to addictions, marriage and family therapy, nursing, counseling, psychology, peer support, and social work professionals.
