Description: SAMHSA describes individual trauma as an event or circumstance resulting in physical harm, emotional harm, and/or life-threatening harm. The impact of trauma can be subtle, treacherous, or outright damaging. It is important to develop and implement treatment services that effectively address the post-traumatic symptoms while successfully managing the risk of triggering individuals into episodes of mental illness symptoms or substance misuse relapse. Providers need to understand how trauma can affect treatment, engagement, and the outcome of behavioral health services. The goal of this summit is to address trauma as an increasingly important part of effective behavioral health care and advance access to evidence-based services for all Alabamians.
Who Should Attend: Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, social workers, counselors, first responders, office of courts, law enforcement, peer support specialists, and any professional interested in gaining knowledge on the treatment of trauma, trauma-informed care, and solutions to achieve a healthier Alabama.
