PA Care Logo

Registration is required for this FREE event!

Date: April 22, 2021; 2:30 to 4:00 p.m.

Many organizations today are under a lot of pressure to become trauma-informed. Both professionals and parents are hearing about the importance of recognizing as well as preventing trauma from happening to the children in their lives. These demands can be a source of confusion: what does being trauma-informed mean? Why is it so important? What is trauma about anyway?

You are invited to attend this webinar that will feature Dr. Sandra Bloom, author of Creating Sanctuary: Toward the Evolution of Sane Societies, and Diane Wagenhals, Program Director for the Lakeside Global Institute. Together they will describe what history and science have taught us about the nature of trauma, what becoming trauma-informed and trauma-responsive means, and why it is such a big deal.

Learning Objectives

  • Define trauma and its impact, why it is such a big deal
  • Describe the causes and neurobiological underpinnings of trauma
  • Explain what being trauma-informed means for organizations and individuals

NOTE: We are in the process of applying for Continuing Education Units for these webinars.
