Outlines adverse childhood experiences, short-term and long-term effects of trauma, PTSD and other analyses of trauma and how it psychologically, socially and developmentally affects children, adults and most plausibly our clients. We run through the importance and modes of Trauma-Informed care and possible triggers in our workplaces. We compare models of delivery in elementary and middle school settings with a trauma-informed lens vs. a non-informed lens. We will also learn what a trauma-informed inclusive practice might look like.
