The effects of trauma have an impact on all of our patients. Do you know what trauma is? Have you heard of Trauma Informed Care? This presentation will review the neurobiology of trauma, how previous exposure to trauma can have a lasting effect, trauma informed care approaches to take with our patients, and how to sustain ourselves in this work.
