Course No:
Location: Auditorium
Date/Time: Friday, March 17, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
Instructor: Mark Sanders

According to the CDC if we could eliminate childhood trauma, 53% of what we help clients with would be totally unnecessary. In this workshop you will learn strategies that will help you address five types of trauma which impact families, including: acute stress disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, complex trauma, 24-7-365 trauma, and historical trauma. We will discuss "secrets theory" and how workers can help decrease the impact of multi-generational trauma on families. Emphasis will also be placed on the use of humor and centering rituals to prevent secondary PTSD. Class notes: 6 contact hours awarded to nurses, counselors and social workers.
