Trauma & Resilience: Caring for our Communities & Ourselves Part 1

February 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

What is the impact of community trauma on patients and professionals in clinical care services? How might an understanding of trauma inform patient care and how we care for ourselves?

Join us for a speaker series for our community health center providers, staff and leadership. This series will offer an overview of the current state of knowledge about community trauma, types of trauma, and the trauma-informed movement as it relates to health and health center professionals.

CHCN/AHC health centers are consistently faced with high numbers of patients with trauma, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse disorders. The series will begin by naming the ways trauma surfaces in our community health centers among patients, staff and providers. We will discuss the larger context of violence, poverty and structural racism that contribute to mental and physical health of patients and the impact on health care professionals and staff.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review and recognize the impact of community trauma on patients and professionals in clinical care services
2. Describe a framework for trauma and healing that acknowledges and integrates personal, interpersonal, community, and systems factors
3. Surface values and beliefs that impact clinical care in the context of community trauma
4. Identify and apply strategies for clinicians and staff for effective self-care and in engagement
with patients.
