Course Description

Trauma-Informed approaches involve both organizational and direct practices that recognize the complex impact trauma has on both families and providers. Building a trauma-informed home visiting program requires that staff at all levels understand trauma and its impact on families. Through this virtual training, home visitors will come to understand how to incorporate trauma-informed practices with the families they serve, connect these families to local trauma resources, and care for themselves as they encounter exposure to the trauma of others.
