Trauma Informed Services Training Series
Dr. Carla Gaff Clark,
Research suggests that most survivors of Intimate Partner Violence experience multiple traumatic events before they come to our agencies. Trauma Informed Care (TIC), or Trauma Informed Services (TIS), is an approach to engaging clients with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role that trauma has played in their lives. The TIS model seeks to change the paradigm from one that asks, “What is wrong with you?” to one that asks, “What has happened to you?” This change opens a new world to us as well as our clients; a world that looks at trauma not as a single event but as a life changing reality.
This training is free and will include a workbook, handouts, charts and screening ideas. Because this training has been certified by the Indiana Professionals Beureau, we will be providing CEUs. Registration is required.
