Training Overview Description

Families are vitally important in all of our lives. This is especially true for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who are more likely to live with and be supported by parents and siblings well into adulthood. However, much of the conversation about trauma and trauma-informed care in the lives of people with IDD has focused on the individual or service organization’s experience and perspectives. This webinar will focus on the importance of using a family lens to understand trauma and trauma-informed care. Specifically, this webinar will focus on the role families play in shaping how individuals experience trauma, the impact of trauma on family systems, families as potential sources of trauma and healing, and best practices for professionals in engaging with families as part of a trauma-informed approach.
