Webinar: Trauma Informed Care
Follow up Q&A Session with Amy Siple

May 5, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM - Webinar
May 12, 2020 | 2:00 - 3:00 Follow up Q&A Session

Trauma has become almost a universal experience. The effect of past trauma(s) can influence how we respond and connect to others and our environment. Long term care staff must become knowledgeable in a trauma informed care approach. A careful assessment, knowledge of triggers, and de-escalation techniques are essential. This presentation will address some ways we can prevent re-traumatization and support mental health well-being. Case studies will be utilized to promote active learning and self-reflection.

A week after this session we will be having a follow up Q&A session. You must have taken part in the Webinar in order to be part of the Q&A session. Please submitt any questions you have for Amy Siple to [email protected] and Amy will take additional questions during that time.

Describe at least two potential long-term impacts of trauma
Name at least one assessment tool that can be utilized to evaluate for trauma impact
List at least two considerations when responding to a person impacted by trauma
