Event description

Description

There is overwhelming consensus that most if not all of the individuals we work with who are experiencing chronic homelessness have had some form of trauma in their lives. The reverberating effects of traumatic experiences can challenge a person’s capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers to accessing services.

Objectives of the session include:

• Increase understanding of trauma

• Create an awareness of the impact of trauma on behavior

• Develop trauma-informed responses

Trauma-informed approaches can help avoid re-traumatizing individuals, and thereby increase safety for all, decrease recidivism, and promote and support healing.

Please note that this is 2/3rds of a day training! Participants are expected to commit to the entire time. Lunch will be served.

A certificate of completion will be provided to all participants that complete the session. The certificate can be used to apply for CEUs for various disciples such as social work, peer certification and more.
