Trauma-Informed Treatment Interventions for Pediatric Therapists
A history of exposure to trauma and other life adversities are common among individuals seeking services from behavioral health providers. Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is an overarching philosophy, framework, and organizational structure designed to better understand and recognize the impact of trauma on individuals through a strengths-based perspective. Designed for pediatric therapists and other professionals, this 2-hour webinar provides attendees with a working understanding of the core principles of trauma-informed care, as well as easy-to-implement treatment strategies.
