Presented by: Celia Williamson, PhD, distinguished professor of social work, University of Toledo
When individuals who have experienced child abuse, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, or sex trafficking are identified, it signifies the presence of trauma and the need for internal recovery efforts. However, only a limited number of professionals are well-versed in responding appropriately.
This lecture will offer insights into trauma, triggers, trauma-informed care, and trauma-focused care, to help clients in their healing process along The Survivor’s Journey. Attendees will gain understanding about the twelve internal and external journeys that clients should travel through, transitioning from victimhood to survivorship and eventually to a state of thriving.
After attending this lecture, participants will be able to:
- Define trauma and the effects of trauma.
- Describe the importance of trauma-informed work.
- Identify trauma-focused work and the difference between informed and focused work.
- Apply the components needed to move victims to survivors and to thrivers.
