We’re excited that someone from our team is able to speak about this important topic. Sign up now, and learn about how to integrate Trauma Informed Care into your organization. Here’s a description of the webinar:

“People who experience trauma–especially Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)–are at an elevated risk for substance use disorders, mental illness, and physical disorders.

Trauma-informed care (TIC) is an evidence-based approach to deliver healthcare in a way that recognizes and responds to the long-term health effects of the experience of trauma.

In the 2014 Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 57, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) addressed trauma-related prevention, screening, assessment, intervention, and treatment issues and strategies, providing a framework for organizations that wanted to take a trauma informed approach.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the connection between Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Substance Use Disorders;
  • Describe promising practices for implementing the trauma-informed care approach; and
  • Consider how trauma-informed care might work in your organization.”
