Prerequisite: This training is for those that have had the full-training and it will count as your refresher.
This course examines the influence of trauma on behavior and offers strategies and staff approaches to promote a culture of care that is trauma-informed and person-centered for all stakeholders, including family members who support those in care. With a better understanding of the function of the behavior, you can better serve those who have experienced trauma.
Trauma-informed care is defined as a framework of thinking and interventions that are directed by a thorough understanding of the profound neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects trauma has on an individual, while recognizing that person’s constant interdependent needs for safety, connections, and ways to manage emotions and impulses. This is an incredibly broad concept that we can understand more concretely by briefly identifying key brain functions and applying them to the CPI Crisis Development Model.
