Online / Live Stream

A vastly underrecognized area of health care is the role trauma plays in people's relationship to their providers. Potentially treatable patients can fall through the cracks because they do not trust their practitioners to know how to work with the histories of suffering that continue to live in their bodies. People frequently avoid seeking health care, many times until it is too late, due to past trauma and a fear of not being heard or being re-traumatized in the course of seeking care. Providing trauma-informed care for patients is essential in creating an environment where patients will continue seeking the medical care, they need rather than not returning until the condition becomes significantly more serious.

This course will help medical professionals understand what trauma is and how it affects people; identify the signs and symptoms of trauma; know how to respond to trauma in a patient; use core principles of care to avoid retraumatizing a patient. Course participants will receive a list of resources to deepen their understanding of what trauma is and how to help patients heal from it.
