With the increased awareness of the impact of trauma on people's lives, helping professionals are asking themselves, "What does this mean in my setting?" And although the language "trauma-informed" is common, program administrators and clinical directors are finding that implementing effective and integrated services in order to become "trauma-responsive" can be quite challenging.
Join world-renowned leaders Stephanie Covington, PhD and Sandra Bloom, MD as they guide you through lectures and group exercises focusing on three specific terms: trauma-informed, trauma-responsive, and trauma-specific. You'll walk away with guidelines on how to become trauma-responsive, materials for conducting an agency self-assessment, and the tools you need for developing a guide team for next steps. Recommendations for trauma-specific and gender-responsive interventions are also provided with suggestions for staff training.
In this blended learning workshop, you'll learn how to:
Applying these principles will help you better organize the process of moving from trauma-informed to trauma-responsive in order to make effective and integrated services a reality.
For each class, you will have access to a live stream lecture by Drs. Covington and Bloom with opportunities to actively engage with the instructors. In addition, exercises will be provided between sessions in order to enhance your knowledge and understanding of each class. A variety of materials will be available to support the learning objectives including lecture slides, supplemental materials, and tools to apply in your own setting.

Registrants will receive an email with detailed instructions for accessing the workshop approximately one week prior to the first live stream session. This program has been endorsed by the Association for Addiction Professionals, NAADAC. Participants who complete all course requirements, including live stream sessions and asynchronous work, will receive 10 clock hours of continuing education credit.
