It is recognized that trauma is a widespread and costly public health issue. This all-encompassing term has been used to frame everything from individual service delivery to large-scale program design. Through recent research and observations, there is an increasing awareness of the impact of trauma on clients, and the risk of re-traumatization, if not treated properly. This session will provide an overview of how to recognize and treat clients with trauma in a variety of different settings and through the lens of micro, mezzo, and macro service delivery.

Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the importance of trauma informed/specific care in social work practice
    • Identify the various forms of trauma (i.e. historical, developmental, type I, II, and III), their prevalence, and impact
    • Understand the principles of trauma-informed/specific interventions at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels
