Trauma and Complex Trauma has a significant impact on how a person receives and participates in health care. It can often appear as patients who do not show up for appointments or have difficulty with engaging in treatment and follow-up care.  This half-day training will provide an overview of trauma and its impact across the lifespan by exploring mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of trauma among our diverse community members. Becoming trauma-informed includes creating a safe and secure environment, especially in primary care settings and can lead to improved health and health care outcomes.

Participants will be able to:

1)    Identify what makes something a traumatic event (the 3-Es of Trauma)

2)    Name six health conditions that are correlated to Adverse Childhood Experiences

3)    Explore the 4-R’s of a Trauma Informed Approach within primary care settings

4)    Develop three action steps to move the Alameda Health Consortium/CHCN towards becoming trauma-informed
