Trauma 101 Webinar

During this session we will focus on psychological trauma to include interpersonal and socioenvironmental stress and structural oppression. We will explore ways to build relationship and gather trauma history to reduce harm, for both the client and mitigation interviewer. Additionally, we will discuss presenting this material in a way that honors your client’s experience and promotes healing.
