Understanding Trauma: Level 3 - In Home Training

Description: Building on what we have learned in levels 1 and 2, this training will educate participants on how to execute trauma informed care practice in family homes. Topics will include the logistics of in-homework such as how to be best prepared, how to alleviate and respond to stressors in the homes of our clients and how we identify and guide expectations. While in-home work is unique from home to home, the formula of trauma informed care creates an evidence-based and Families First complimentary structure. Attendees will engage in practical activities from a foundation of truly understanding the scientific and sociological processes that facilitate pro-social connection and build resilience.
