Craven Community College
Trauma-Informed Services Across the Continuum of Care
Exposure to trauma occurs at alarmingly high rates in children. Traumatic stress in childhood can cause impairments in emotional, behavioral, physical, and developmental functioning. Furthermore, adverse experiences in childhood have been connected with illness, high-risk behaviors and death in adults. An important tool for addressing emotional and behavioral concerns for children and their caregivers with a trauma history is recognizing how their experiences have impacted their beliefs about themselves, adults who care for them, and the world around them.
This training is designed to provide useful information to professionals working with traumatized populations and to get professionals thinking in a more trauma-informed way. Participants will learn about how childhood trauma impacts human beings throughout the life span and be able to participate in interactive experiences to help better understand trauma-informed practice. Participants will also have an opportunity to assess their own personal or agency's level of trauma-informed practices.
