This course will introduce participants the impact of trauma on individuals using the CDC- Kaiser research study, ACES, as a foundation. This study notes the high prevalence of trauma in the general population and the correlation of trauma exposure to negative health outcomes across physical, social and emotional functioning.  Understanding of how trauma may manifest in various settings will be discussed, including clinic and community settings in which staff see clients.  The impact of vicarious trauma on staff will also be reviewed. 


Attendees will develop an understanding of the impact of trauma, strengthen trauma sensitive response repertoire, and increase awareness of potential vicarious trauma impact on staff across job roles.
