Training Overview Description

Understanding the impact of trauma on the lives of individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities is critical for those providing community-based services and should impact the manner with which organizations deliver support. However, it is not adequate to limit focus on the training and development of provider staff only. It is imperative that organizations address culture, policies and practices at all levels through a lens of Trauma-Informed Care. Most existing tools for organizational assessment have not focused specifically on the IDD population. This session will explore one local system’s collaborative approach to developing a Trauma-Informed Care Organizational Assessment and strategic steps taken to develop a Trauma-Informed System of Care.
