Trauma-Informed Care is a necessary skill set for clinicians of every licensing level and administrators across the mental health spectrum. This workshop will help attendees to understand how patients are impacted by prior trauma no matter how they present for treatment, learn the gender discrepancies in trauma, outline service necessities for trauma survivors, explore some program examples, and review ethical considerations for clinicians. Each participant should gain a more focused and systematic approach to assessing need and providing more sensitive trauma-informed care.
