What is trauma-informed care? What does it really mean? How do we really practice it? Is it just one more term that is used without a full understanding of what it really entails and the implications thereof? Yet, don’t our clients and patients deserve better? And don’t clinicians deserve better?

It is essential for us to learn and master what it really means to practice trauma-informed care. Let us learn the pitfalls to avoid. Let us learn and practice the principles, techniques, and steps. Let us learn what is essential to making a difference, and let us help our patients and clients, ourselves, and our agency benefit from trauma-informed care.

What you’ll learn

  • Learned the framework of the Socratic Motivational Practice in effectively working with those who are impacted by trauma and applying trauma-informed care.
