Time Zone: America/Detroit
Local Time: Tuesday, March 14, 2017 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


This training is funded by the Michigan Crime Victims Service Commission, through a grant under the Victims of Crime Act. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Michigan Crime Victims Service Commission.


Final registration deadline: Wed. March 8 (midnight)

Training Description:

Trauma-informed care is grounded in and directed by a thorough understanding of the neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma and the prevalence of these experiences in persons who seek and receive domestic and sexual assault services. Service delivery through a trauma-informed model using an intersectional lens is essential to healing for survivors. Join us for a day of training, group exercises, and discussion on how we can incorporate trauma-informed care into everything we do including care for ourselves. Presenters: Paula Callen, M.A.O.M., and Tracey Helms, L.M.S.W. (follow the link below and see page 3 for presenter bios).
