It is estimated that more than 60% of youth age 17 and younger have been exposed to crime, violence and abuse either directly or indirectly. Then there are other forms of trauma a youth experiences when living in poverty. With this high prevalence, you may already be working with a youth who has experienced trauma or you will in the future.
This training workshop will provide attendees with a fuller picture of what is involved in the continuum of care for youth who experience trauma. This includes understanding the effects of trauma on youth, practical ideas in addressing trauma when working with youth, as well as assisting parents in supporting the youth. Also to be addressed is self-care for the professional who is exposed to vicarious trauma on a regular basis.
- Gain an understanding of the four main elements of the continuum of trauma informed care.
- Learn at least one practical application to use with a youth who has experienced trauma.
- Develop confidence in assisting parents in using the perspective of their youth who has been exposed to trauma and understanding the youth’s experience in order to respond to their youth rather than react.
- Learn at least one method of self-care as a professional who works with individuals who have experienced trauma.
