Title : How trauma informed care will revolutionize health care


The Adverse Childhood Experience study, done by Kaiser and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, revealed the prevalence of trauma in childhood. Additional research has revealed the long-term effects of trauma on the physical and psychological health of the adults they become. With the surge in drug abuse, suicide, and ineffective coping with life stressors, it is vital that all healthcare providers become aware of the long-term effects of trauma and learn how to practice with trauma informed care (TIC). This session will explore ways to adapt TIC to individual practice and how to educate the public on trauma informed interactions. Case studies will be used to show how to move traumatized persons beyond the freeze state into better decision making.

Take Away Notes:

• Explain the effects of adverse childhood experiences on children and adults

• Describe how to apply the principles of trauma informed care in the healthcare workplace

• Describe how to help community members prevent trauma and use previous trauma to make healthy choices
