Implementing Trauma Informed Practices in the Homeless Service System: Understanding Trauma

March 10, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The Regional Task Force on Homelessness is excited to have partnered with the District Attorney’s Office to provide a training on the incorporation of trauma informed practices throughout the homeless services system.  Whether your program is primarily engaged in outreach, shelter, interim/bridge housing, or permanent housing solutions, we hope you will encourage your staff to attend.  Today is the first of two sessions:

Understanding Trauma

  • Definition of the causes of trauma
  • Trauma and the Brain – Understanding Abuse Survivor’s responses and impacts on the brain
  • Impacts of trauma on physical and mental health, learning, memory, and how unaddressed trauma can impact survivors over time
  • How trauma manifests in behaviors
  • Differences between children, teens and adults
  • Neurological changes that can occur as the result of trauma and examples of triggers
