Webinar: NADD & NADSP Summer Webinar Series: Session 2: Safe, Connected, and In Control: Trauma Responsive Care, Part Two

Aug 11, 2021 | Events, Webinars

In this session we build on the material from week one. Trauma Responsive Care a research-based approach to trauma. Using TRC can give you the “next steps” beyond being informed when dealing with someone who has been affected by trauma. TRC is a brain-body relational model that also helps staff to help people heal from their wounds. We’ll explore why safe, connected, and in control are the neurological steps to helping people to regulate themselves, and how this can be used with other interventions and models. Finally, we’ll learn to how to use TRC as a universal precaution—helping everyone to feel safe, connected, and in control.
