    This program will teach basic concepts of Trauma-Informed Care- an increasingly important evidenced-based practice for service providers and their organizations.  The workshop will offer clear definitions of types of trauma and stress with a specific focus on the impact of toxic stress on a developing brain.  Understanding the mechanism by which adversity in childhood impacts the adoption of high-risk behaviors and subsequent health outcomes can give us important insight into some of the major public health crises of our time, including obesity and addiction.  Trauma-Informed Care offers a framework from which to understand challenging behaviors and resistance to treatment at both an organizational and face-to-face level.  In addition, using a Trauma-Informed framework can guide specific day to day interactions with clients to become more collaborative, responsive, and ultimately effective.
