Trauma-Informed Practices 101
This training is open to City of Baltimore employees only.
Have you heard the term, “trauma-informed approach” but you aren’t quite sure what it is? Do you want to know how trauma affects individuals on a day to day basis? Do you practice trauma-informed care in your workplace?
Trauma is one of the major epidemics of the 21st century that is infiltrating communities throughout the Nation. Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is an approach that presumes that an individual is more likely than not to have a history of trauma. This training provides basic skills on how to effectively implement a Trauma- Informed Care Approach by recognizing the direct impact that trauma has on an individual.
TIC 101 aims to educate individuals on methods of integrating trauma-informed knowledge into all aspects of relationships; and educate agencies on ways to incorporate trauma services to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma thus, avoiding possible re-traumatization.
