This community-focused session explores the role that traumatic experiences can have in people’s everyday life. By learning and implementing a trauma-informed approach, participants will bring a new understanding to the roles and relationships they have in their communities. Trauma is part of human experience and working from a trauma-informed lens acknowledges the prevalence of trauma within the population. As such, front line workers in the human services sector can anticipate that they will often serve individuals who have experienced or been affected by trauma. This includes the children and youth that we see every day. The hope of sharing this information is that together we can create a kinder more generous community for everyone.
