Join us for Trauma Talks as we hear from Stephanie Barger, MBA, MDiv, Jon Ebert, PhD, Loraine Lucinski, MPH, Melissa McGee, MS, MA, Cary Rayson, MSSW, Angie Thompson, MSP.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are early traumatic events that can have negative, long-lasting effects on health and well-being. Economic hardship is the most common adverse childhood experience reported, but other experiences range from parental divorce, incarceration, or abuse (physical, mental, sexual, etc.).
Trauma-informed care is a framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all trauma, so that clients or patients are not re-traumatized by well-meaning caregivers and providers. This seminar provides information about trauma, testimonies how a traumainformed care approach is transforming and improving care, and information about policies and coalitions forming from ACEs in Nashville.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
* Define and list types of trauma.
* Broadly discuss research, public policy and the impact of ACEs on Tennesseans.
* Distinguish between programs and organizations that “say” they are trauma informed and those implementing a framework of trauma-informed care.
* Identify several organizations and models implementing a system of trauma-informed care.
* Actively engage in public policy and education to further ACE Nashville or trauma-informed care.
