Trauma-Informed Care and Resiliency
ATZ Partner Workshop Series
We will begin these workshops by exploring the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, using sexual- and gender-based violence as examples of trauma. We will delve into the impacts of trauma on neurobiology, and discuss how science helps us understand symptoms of trauma in new ways. We will then look at trauma- and violence-informed care as a universal precaution that helps us to meet the needs of patients and clients more effectively. Using the newest research in resiliency, we will demonstrate specific client or patient skills building that can be nurtured through a trauma- and violence-informed practice. We will end the workshop series with practical information about local resources and referrals.
- The scope of gender-based violence
- The impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences

“Mandy and Lisa did an exceptional job at bringing genuine understanding to the material. How they drew from actual experiences of care provision greatly helped my understanding.”
“Facilitators were very supportive. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience. I appreciate the way you shared your practical clinical experience with us.”
“Question of Care workshops are a great affordable resource for frontline workers. Topics and content are relevant and needed information for day-to-day work. Even if you are familiar with the theme, there are always new things to learn, new ideas or updated research, shared tips and techniques, and the peer support is very valuable, especially working in rural communities.”
