What is trauma-informed care, and what are the challenges and benefits of implementing this approach?
The term ‘trauma-informed care‘ has recently become a buzzword and is now finding its way into the mainstream menu of must-have training across the public sector. But ‘trauma’, in itself, is nothing new. This begs the question – aren’t we already informed enough about trauma?
This free webinar, presented by Dr Sheena Webb, explored some of the meaning and myths around what it means to be trauma-informed and considered the value, challenges and potential pitfalls of trying to adopt a trauma-informed approach within the public sector.
After watching this webinar, you will have gained:
- A deeper knowledge of what trauma-informed care is and the range of ways it may be applied
- A critical understanding of some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding trauma-informed approaches
- An appreciation of the potential benefits of trauma-awareness across a range of settings as well as the consequences of not being trauma-informed.
