Event description

Description

Men and women who have experienced chronic homelessness have likely experienced trauma related to those periods of homelessness—whether it included loss of custody of children, violence, or extreme fear. In addition, our clients may have experienced prior physical, sexual, or emotional trauma related not only to homelessness, but also to behaviors in active addiction, or chaotic childhood periods. This workshop is designed to assist case managers with identifying the signs of trauma in clients through motivational interviewing techniques and through patterns of behavior they see in clients. Case studies will be utilized to assist participants with understanding the signs of trauma, how to manage situations in which clients begin to talk about their trauma, and how and when to refer clients for therapy to work on trauma.

Coffee and light refreshments will be served. CEUs will be offered.
