Training Description:

Trauma histories are common among people with substance use disorders (SUDs), as both are conditions that involve adaptations in the brain. Join Robin for a discussion on the neurobiology of trauma and SUDs. We will look at how reaching for substances to alleviate distress and discomfort makes sense from the perspective of the central nervous system. Trauma Informed Care (TIC) principles are essential for serving SUD clients. Treatment approaches that heal trauma wounds will fortify recovery. We explore how blending trauma-informed strategies into your SUD practice can provide an emotionally reparative experience. 

Training Objectives:

At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain why it is so common for people with SUDs to have experienced trauma. 
  2. Discuss why caring for the central nervous system is an important element in supporting recovery from both trauma and SUDs. 
  3. Identify resources and strategies available to helpers and supporters that facilitate healing and recovery.
