Trauma-Informed Service Programs

Green Clock Hours: 1.75

A trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. Trauma can arise from a single, major experience. It can also result from the cumulative effect of many little experiences.

Most adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, or IDD, have experienced trauma. The effects of trauma can last a lifetime. They can also contribute to challenging behaviors. In this course, you will learn how trauma affects people with IDD. You will learn about trauma-informed support strategies, including how they apply at the programmatic level.

This course is based on two works written by Karyn Harvey and published by the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities:
•    Trauma-Informed Behavioral Intervention: What Works and What Doesn’t
•    Trauma and Healing in the Lives of People with Intellectual Disability: Therapeutic Approach and Materials for Therapists and Paraprofessionals
