ACT 201 for Certified Peer Support Specialists - Trauma-Informed Care

Statistics tell us at least 90% of individuals entering the public behavioral health system have experienced trauma, yet often trauma goes unaddressed during treatment. Does trauma matter? Why isn’t it talked about more? What happens when we ask, “what happened” rather than “what’s wrong”? What does it mean to be trauma informed?


In this engaging course, we will define trauma from a peer perspective and examine its impact and prevalence on those we serve. Watching a TED Talk on the A.C.E. study, we will gain an understanding of the correlation between adverse childhood experiences and negative health outcomes. Together we will consider the paradigm shift from what’s wrong to what’s happened and how it changes what is possible.

Fees

$25/person

Objective

  1. Define trauma, why it matters?
  2. Understand the impact trauma has on an Individual.

To make an informed choice, it is recommended that parapros read the workshop descriptions for both ACT CPSS trainings and ACT 201 Case Manager/Advocate trainings and match the training content to current work responsibilities.
