Integrating Trauma-Informed Care into Communities and Schools
In this presentation, Dr. Nolen will incorporate real-life case examples, evidence-based principals, and a unique strengths-based conceptualization model to support organizations and care providers in understanding and responding to the complex needs of trauma-exposed youth. With a combined focus on the biological, psychological, relational, and neuropsychological after-effects of trauma exposure, Dr. Nolen challenges participants to see the world “through the eyes” of trauma-exposed youth – and then discusses recommendations for helping these children to instead experience safety, stability, and love.
- To understand the unique and multifaceted impacts of early trauma-exposure on a child’s biological functioning, worldview, and self-concept.
- To conceptualize “problem-behaviors” and challenges as reactions to traumatic experience, and to:
- Effectively incorporate this conceptualization in order to develop compassionate, strengths-based, and effective interventions for better supporting trauma-exposed youth in communities and schools.
