About The Event

In this webinar, presented by Right Direction, participants will learn the definition of “trauma” and about the various outcomes of traumatic experiences, up to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  Participants will learn the common physical, emotional and cognitive symptoms of PTSD and other trauma reactions, as well as the common co-occurring mental health disorders that can develop post traumatic events. 

Finally, participants will learn how to implement a trauma-informed approach to help coworkers who have experienced trauma by creating a work environment that is conducive to recovery.  This includes opportunities to create a sense of safety, start the conversation to offer support and share available resources.
