Never before has the demand for human serving professionals rooted in a strong foundational understanding of trauma, its impacts, and how to support those exposed been more apparent in our public sectors. Furthermore, understanding the overlaps between trauma and substance use is imperative for providers aiming to provide high quality integrated care to individuals and families.  Despite the workforce demands for trauma specific knowledge and skills, many degree programs still don’t require coursework or training in this field. This often leaves professionals without the necessary knowledge and skills to adequately address trauma exposure with the populations they serve. CCSME is sponsoring 6 hours of training over two days of professional development using an interactive zoom platform focused on increasing skill in the application of trauma informed approaches. Homework and pre-work will be utilized. The content of the day will assume a foundational knowledge of trauma and its impacts and require participants to critically examine how to apply trauma informed principles to the populations they serve. Drawing upon nationally recognized curriculum, participants will engage in case conceptualization, assessment, and analysis to determine appropriate trauma informed interventions and strategies. Specific focus will be paid to the impacts on children, adolescents, and the family system. This will be accomplished using case based and problem-based learning pedagogy and will be highly interactive in nature.

Training objectives include:

  • Identify and apply trauma informed principles to professional practice at the individual, organizational, and systems level.
  • Identify traumatic stress reactions and recognize the broad range of impacts on individuals, families, and communities.
  • Identify impacts of working with individuals exposed to trauma on the self/professional provider and identify strategies for addressing impacts.
  • Assess the impact of trauma and substance use on behavior and development and identify next steps for intervention for families experiencing both.
