PDS19211: Trauma Informed Care when Treating Chronic Illness, Disabilities, and Substance Abuse
January 9, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
Trauma Informed Care when treating Chronic Illness and Disabilities & Substance Abuse Research supports the need for trauma informed care when working with clients who have a chronic illness and or disability (CID). It further supports that CID patients in substance abuse treatment programs would benefit from treatment plan models that take into consideration trauma experienced in the past. Research implies that there is a need to make a cultural shift when treating clients. Practitioners who develop treatment plans must consider the possibility of triggering trauma, as wells work to prevent unintentional re-traumatization. The purpose of this seminar is to provide the participant with information on chronic illness and disabilities, to understand the importance of trauma informed care and the benefit of a strong support system during recovery.
