More and more research is emerging on the impact of trauma within families. This training will cover the core essential elements of understanding trauma, the neurobiology of trauma, and the impact on individuals and communities. Course topics include information about how to identify those living with trauma, recognize early warning signs, and deescalate situations. In support of those living in housing communities, participants will learn how to provide trauma-informed services. This course fulfills the HUD RSC training requirement under the subject area Mental Health Issues.
