Webinar: NADD & NADSP Summer Webinar Series: Session 1: Beyond Trauma-Informed: Trauma Responsive Care, Part One

Aug 11, 2021 | Events, Webinars

In this session we look at the basics of trauma. We’ll explore how having a disability or multiple life stressors can increase the risk of traumatic events and the damage they can do. We’ll explore the brain-body connection in trauma and what happens neurologically when we are confronted with a threat. We will cover the two kinds of trauma and how they impact us. We will learn about all the hidden ways trauma can impact a person’s life: physically, cognitively, behaviorally and socially.
