Trauma 101: An Overview of Trauma-Informed Care

May 25th, 2022 No comments

Research shows that 67% of the population has experienced at least one Adverse Childhood Experience. These trauma-based adversities are predictive of a multitude of toxic physical, mental and social outcomes throughout a person’s lifetime.

That’s why Samaritan Counseling Center, with funding from PA Care Partnership, is organizing a free webinar providing an overview of trauma for youth workers of all types, including mental health professionals, educators, and community workers. The webinar will take place from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, and the training will be provided by Lakeside.

Topics covered will include:

What is Trauma?
Principles of Trauma
Kinds of Trauma
Brain Development
Theory of Everything
Post-Traumatic Growth
Reframe Continuum of Sophistication
Safety Plans
TED Talk with Dr. Nadine Burke-Harris
And more

Registration is free but limited to 100 participants. If you would like more information, contact Mike Shook, MA, LPC, at mshook@scclanc.org.
