Trauma-Informed Care: Building Resilience and a Healthy Culture
The UW-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education is offering “Trauma-Informed Care: Building Resilience and a Healthy Culture”:
“What started with the recognition of PTSD in Vietnam veterans has evolved into an approach used in medical care, therapy and even in business and customer service. Trauma-informed care has become even more critical as our society heals from collective traumas that have occurred, e.g., the Covid pandemic.
Explore the significance of trauma-informed care and the origins and benefits of this holistic approach. The trauma-informed care approach is vital at all levels, from organizational culture to provider self-care as well as the care of clients. Assess your organization’s culture and your own professional quality of life. Gain tools for recognizing and preventing secondary trauma, emphasizing self-care practices for professional and personal well-being. By the course’s end, you will be equipped with a template for trauma-informed care and valuable skills to enhance your practice and well-being.”
