About the webinar

Level: Introductory/Intermediate

Understanding the experience, effect and impact of trauma on individuals is key to developing trauma-informed practices. This foundational course will explore the experience of trauma and how unaddressed issues may manifest in tenants and in the workplace. In addition, the course will take a deep look into how our brains work; to better understand psychological injury and wounds and the impact of stressors on overall health and well-being. By understanding our brains we can begin to take better care of ourselves and others.

This course is ideal for anyone considering implementing trauma-informed practices or wishing to develop a better understanding of the experience of traumatic events.

Note: this course is focused on “understanding trauma” and will not include strategies for trauma-informed care. This is an ideal primer for Trauma-Informed Care. For training on Trauma-Informed Care see our course catalog.
