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 TIC principles.

In the 10+ years since it arrived, we’ve learned to change the question from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?” Person-first language has made its way into our service vernacular. We have welcomed peer support specialists to our teams. We are beginning to appreciate the imperative of self-care to avoid secondary traumatization and burnout. We’ll take a look at what research says about how it has improved services.

We’ll examine at the ways in which Trauma Informed Care is evolving with new perspectives and new language shifts. We’ll consider how these new voices are broadening our understanding of the many ways the people are exposed to trauma in their lives. Join us for a lively discussion about how this movement continues to transform the way we care for people and support recovery.

Training Objectives:

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Review the essential principles of Trauma Informed Care
  • Discuss how effective the TIC movement has been in improving quality of services
  • Examine new developments unfolding in the evolution of the movement.

About:
Stress and anxiety are the leading mental health problems in the United States. They are fueling a public health crisis by contributing to infectious disease epidemics, addiction, overdose, and suicide. Mental health professionals face a growing threat of burnout, which impairs clinician effectiveness and interferes with quality of life. All professional mental health organizations have ethical guidelines that warn professionals of the impairments that ensue when they are practicing beyond their stress tolerance and urge members to self-monitor for signs of burnout. This presentation will provide a detailed look at the physiology of stress and how it affects our well-being and the well-being of our clients. Six aspects of burnout will be described and suggestions for reducing the impact of stress will be given.

Training Objectives:

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1) Breakdown the physical effects of stress

2) List the ways in which low socioeconomic status and income inequality lead to poor health

3) Analyze the 6 dimensions of burnout

4) Reflect on ways that we may be able to increase our control over parts of our work situation
