Training Description:

Trauma-Informed Care is a movement that has made its way across the nation and into different helping and service fields. Wisconsin was an early adopter of this principle, and in the 10+ years since it arrived, it is  common to see many things be described as “trauma-informed.”

But what does that mean for the individual service provider? What does it mean to be a trauma-informed therapist, case manager, team leader or program support specialist? This training will discuss the elements of Trauma Informed Care as well as specific practical examples. We will consider the reasons why understanding trauma is critical to supporting recovery. We will take a closer look at trauma and learn to “drop the trauma lens” and notice what we see. We will shift the question from “what is wrong with you?” to “what happened to you?” We will discuss how trauma-informed care can improve the work we do, but also help ourselves avoid burnout.

Audience: Requirement for Dane County Human Service CCS staff.  Appropriate for clinicians, program support staff, and administrative staff.

Workshop: Complex Trauma – So Much More Than PTSD

Time: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Location: Zoom Event-You will be emailed the Zoom link after registering for the event.

Cost for the Training: $75.00
3.0 CE hours* (ACEP approved # 6760)
Registration: To register, click HERE!

Training Description:

Exploring the notion that the most “difficult” clients on your caseload are likely complex developmental trauma survivors. If you were to shift your perspective, how does that change how you offer mental health care?

Understanding how developmental neglect and abuse affect people in adolescence and adulthood allows therapists to start with the fundamental notion of safety. Emphasize the therapeutic alliance, cultivate a safe space for the person to entertain the possibility that safe, respectful adults exist in the world, and a safe, respectful relationship is possible.

Robin will be will discussing Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), a psychiatric diagnosis in the DSM since version III, but still considered controversial and shrouded by many myths. We will consider what we’ve been taught about DID in our clinical training and media representation. And then we will meet some people with DID who discuss their experiences and their recovery.

Many different resources will be included for additional exploration, interactive exercises, and plenty of time for Q&A.
