We are all a bit traumatized, what can we do about it?
Trauma plays a role in anyone who works with at risk youth and families. It is important to understand the strong effect trauma has on the brain and how it impacts care providers. Having a trauma-informed lens enhances care for patients and supports a healthy work environment. In this session we will explore how Quality Improvement can be used to collect data and test interventions that support staff and reduce the impact of secondary trauma. We will gain an understanding of how trauma directly affects our interactions with each other, our patients, and families. We will also discuss best practices and strategies tested through rapid cycle improvement in our Child Advocacy Center to create a culture of self-care.
