Part 3 of our 3-Part Series happening December 7, 2020
Substance Use Disorder prevention providers serve individuals, families, and communities experiencing uncertainty, increased stress, and trauma. Under the current social distancing environment, individuals and families suffer from an increase of isolation, stress, and anxiety, as many families are unable to meet their basic needs due to unemployment.
These challenges often lead to substance use and mental health issues. Understanding how to incorporate trauma informed approaches into prevention services is necessary to address community needs. The purpose of the 2020 Community Prevention Initiative (CPI) Virtual Regional Training is to examine complex topics related to trauma and provide participants with the opportunity to better understand the types of trauma individuals and communities experience, strategies to implement a trauma informed care approach, and examples of what prevention-focused trauma informed care looks like in practice.
