February Webinar

Trauma Informed Part 2: Non-Negotiables in Trauma Informed Care -
Learning Through Case Studies

Rachel Ashcraft

Presented by Rachel Ashcraft, MS, OTR/L, TBRI® Practitioner

Monday, February 24, 2020
12:00-1:00 PM Mountain Time

This webinar will utilize three case studies across settings (Early Intervention, Outpatient, and School System) to illustrate core principles that are always necessary when working with children who have experienced early adversity. Use of “5 Essentials” (Environment, Experience, Expectations, Empowerment, and Empathy) to guide clinical reasoning across settings will be utilized as a guide when pulling from Trauma Informed models.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize models of trauma informed care to invest in further training based on core concepts that are always necessary
  • Apply essential healthcare considerations to case studies in early intervention, school, and outpatient settings
  • Identify treatment strategies to ensure felt safety across a variety of contexts including school, early intervention, and outpatient settings

This will be presented live via webinar on February 24, 2020 and a recording will be available for later access. When purchased, the link for webinar attendance will be given 24 hours before presentation.
