⭐️ CME Opportunity for this video below ⭐️

Trauma-informed care sounds like a hard-to-learn, difficult and stressful topic (also reclaimed as “healing-centered care” to de-center trauma in some places, which feels a lot friendlier).

But it’s really accessible. It’s a paradigm of practice you’re likely already doing a lot of in your day-to-day practice, but possibly being more aware of it can help you be more intentional about it.

It centers around the ways that trauma impacts patient care, and the specific ways we can interact with our patients to avoid re-triggering trauma.

I’m sharing about this topic because 1) it’s important, but 2) because even caring, well-intentioned providers can cause harm if they’re uninformed.

It makes a HUGE difference to patients to practice this way!

How to Provide Trauma-Informed Care and Avoid Unintentional Harm

 In this video I cover:

  • The types of responses patients get in response to a stressful situation and what to watch out for
  • What Trauma Informed Care is and the specific ways you can help patients feel safe and avoid re-traumatization
