Wednesday Lecture Series: Leading Change: Dissemination and Implementation of Trauma Informed Practices
Childhood trauma and adversity has a significant impact on the developing child. In addition, trauma disrupts families and systems surrounding the child [e.g. school systems, treatment systems, child welfare, and juvenile justice].
This presenetation describes a unique approach to disseminating and implementing trauma informed care in the state of Tennessee’s through the Centers of Excellence. Successful treatment and resiliency for our at-risk children rely on individual intervention/resiliency in concert with systemic intervention/resiliency.
As an academic partner to the state, the Center of Excellence Models supports strategic consultation, coordination, evaluation, and dissemination efforts that can support the systems serving at-risk children.
Clinicians will be oriented to the Tennessee Centers of Excellence model as an innovative partnership between the state and local academic partners to support the advance of Trauma Informed Care. Often times, clinicians have very little time to coordinate and “inform” systems serving the child [e.g. school, child welfare, juvenile justice], which perpetuates care that is in “silos” – working independently and without collaboration.
The target audience for this presetation is physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other professionals working with at risk children.
Recognize the individual and systemic effects of early childhood traumatic stress.
Describe the Centers of Excellence Modal in Tennessee as a strategy to disseminate and support trauma-informed care.
Discuss the lessons learned in implementing trauma & resiliency informed care.
