Trauma Informed Care: What Is It and What Can We Do About It?
Jun 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for this FREE interactive webinar to explore strategies for supporting people who have been touched by traumatic experiences!

A person’s behavior is shaped and learned through their experiences and interactions with others in their environments. Challenging behaviors that are difficult to manage may emerge when that person’s behavior has been shaped by traumatic experiences. For people with developmental disabilities traumatic experiences may be hidden and only show signs of existence when challenging behavior emerges.

This training will discuss trauma and how it may present in people diagnosed with developmental disabilities. Moreover, this training will discuss strategies for supporting people touched by traumatic experiences including current and relevant situations such as natural disasters and pandemics.
