FOCUS: Trauma-Informed Practice with Families

This 2-part series focuses on the latest evidence-based findings and incorporates practical applications for daily work with families exposed to trauma.

PART 1: Nov. 2nd: Adverse Childhood Experiences Study (ACEs) Overview
In the United States, intimate partner violence (IPV) affects approximately one in three women and one in four men during their lifetimes. It is estimated that 15.5 million children in the U.S. are exposed to violence in the home annually. The Adverse Childhood Experience Study (ACEs) show that many of these traumas occur before age 18 and result in disrupted brain development, adoption of at risk health behaviors, and increase the risk for disease, disability and social problems in children and adults, including developing physical and mental illness.

PART 2: Nov. 9th: Practical Strategies & Tools for Working With Families & Children
Evidence has shown that by implementing trauma informed practices within all human service systems professionals can more effectively work with individuals and families to build their resilience and enhance overall health and well-being.
Participants will learn the importance of screening for family violence, how to screen, what makes a screen positive, and referral strategies. Evidence-based interventions using trauma-informed practice principlies will also be reviewed and practical ways to apply these in daily practice. This is an interactive, hands-on training with collaboration experience.

FACILITATOR: Valerie Radu, PhD, LCSW has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Tennessee since 1996. Dr. Radu has nearly 20 years of experience as a practitioner, community leader, faculty member and administrator in a variety of settings. She uses collaboration, experiential learning, and other innovative techniques to both teach and lead. She has a special interest and commitment to the principles of social justice, peace, and reconciliation on personal, community, and global levels.

For the past 10 years, she has also provided clinical supervision to MSW social workers seeking hours towards LCSW licensure.

NOTE: The GEORGIA COMPOSITE BOARD OF PROFESSIONAL COUNSELORS, SOCIAL WORKERS AND MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPISTS recognizes continuing education programs approved by any state National Association of Social Workers or state licensure boards as meeting CEU requirements for Georgia licensed social workers (refer to http://rules.sos.state.ga.us/gac/135-9). It is the responsibility of the social worker, using their professional judgment, to justify that the continuing educational program meets the guidelines of the Board and is relevant to their professional practice. All social workers should review the specific requirements to ensure the workshops they are attending are applicable and appropriate to their professional development.

*This training meets the requirements for continuing education contact hours for the State of TN licensed social workers.*
