Trauma-Informed Approaches in Home Visiting (MOD041)

Length: 2 hours
ETO: Dynamics of Family Relationships
PDR:



Trauma-informed approaches involve both organizational and direct practices that recognize the complex impact trauma has on both families and providers. Building a trauma-informed home visiting program requires that staff at all levels understand trauma and its impact on families. Through this training, home visitors will come to understand how to incorporate trauma-informed practices with the families they serve, connect these families to local trauma resources, and care for themselves as they encounter exposure to the trauma of others. A Blended Webinar version is also available for this training. MOD041
