Trauma Informed Care for First Responders
May 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
This is a 3 hour Trauma Informed Care Training for all first responders residing in our Board region of Fayette, Highland, Pickaway, Pike and Ross Counties.
According to SAMHSA, Trauma is a widespread, harmful and costly public health problem. It occurs as a result of violence, traumatic experiences, abuse, neglect, loss, disaster, war and other emotionally harmful experiences. Traumatic exposure cuts across age groups, gender, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, geography and sexual orientation. Individual trauma results from an event, series of events, or set of circumstances that is experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally harmful or life-threatening and that has lasting adverse effects on the individual’s functioning and mental, physical, social, emotional or spiritual well-being.
Trauma-informed care is an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives.
