Trauma-Informed Care for Diverse Populations:
Noeticus Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program
«Specializing in OBH Pathway 2 Addiction Counselor Classes for Mental Health Professionals Working on or with a Clinical Master's or Doctoral Degree»
Trauma-informed counseling practice fundamentally shifts the focus of clinical care from a pathological framework set on finding out what is wrong with clients to that of understanding what happened to them to make certain symptom sets adaptive. This class introduces addiction counselora and other mental health professionals to the concept of trauma-informed care, an approach that is being adopted more frequently within the human services fields based upon an increased awareness of the ways in which trauma impacts functioning. It also describes and defines what trauma-informed care is and illuminates ways in which a traditional treatment setting can be modified to increase the sense of safety experienced by clients in treatment along the continuum of care. Additionally, class participants learn how to incorporate trauma-informed practices into treatment with diverse populations, such as military veterans, women, people with co-occurring disorders, and other groups. Although trauma treatment approaches are considered and various community resources presented, this class is not designed to teach how to do trauma specific treatment.
Participants in this Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) Approved training learn: 1) important terms and concepts related to trauma-informed care; 2) the connection between addictive behaviors, victimization/violence, and trauma; 3) principles and philosophy of trauma-informed care; 4) strategies that support creating a «safe-enough» clinical environment; 5) the differences between trauma-informed, trauma-sensitive, and trauma-specific approaches; 6) the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria of PTSD and how that relates to non-DSM conceptualizations such as complex trauma and developmental trauma disorder; 7) how a trauma-informed approach can be applied to various treatment settings using the SAMHSA guidelines; and 8) ways to intgrate a trauma-informed approach into the collaborative care team.
NOTE: This training is approved by the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) for CAC/LAC credentialing with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA).
