NeC-ROTAC Webinar – The Caring Connection: Trauma-Informed Care and Recovery Planning (in Rural Communities)

June 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Many providers and agencies in rural communities are familiar with the core components of both Trauma-Informed Care and Recovery Planning but may not be familiar with the preparation necessary to provide trauma-informed recovery planning in collaboration with their clients. While working with clients to both plan for their recovery and address challenges to their recovery, trauma in its many forms has a role to play as a part of this planning. This workshop will lean into providers and caregivers identifying and recognizing the role and impact of trauma on recovery planning and how to work with clients to identify when trauma activation may impact their recovery plan This workshop will review the core components of trauma-informed care and lean into how to work with clients to identify how and when trauma impacts during their recovery journey.
