Seminar: Trauma Informed Care

Seminar: Trauma Informed Care

Friday 13th April 2018

XG20 Lonsdale Building, DCU

Trauma informed care is a framework for working with children and youth who are particularly vulnerable. With histories of child abuse and complex trauma, they enter our care systems with troubling behaviours and symptoms, but are not able to articulate their experiences. A trauma informed approach helps to respond more effectively to these children and youth.
