Understanding the Impact of Trauma and Community Violence-WEB

Trauma has sometimes been defined in reference to circumstances that are outside the realm of normal human experience. Unfortunately, this definition does not always hold true for the clients with whom we work. For some, trauma can occur frequently and become part of the common human experience, especially community violence. The results of trauma and community violence can influence and compound our clients’ difficulties. This workshop provides an overview of trauma and community violence, and explores the impact the two phenomena have on clients. The webinar is also designed to give professionals tools to address the residual effects of trauma and community violence with their clients. Additionally, professionals will examine ways they can be exposed to trauma vicariously and therefore will understand the importance of self-care to combat burnout.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
