Counselors, School Psychologists, Social Workers and Administrators
This trauma-informed care (TIC) workshop is designed for professionals who want to gain an understanding of
TIC, discover how trauma impacts learning and behavior, and learn how to establish safety and prevent re-

focusing skills and academic performance. Concepts that will be reviewed and discussed include trauma-
informed treatment principles (n=16), dissociation, hyper-vigilance, traumatic/emotional memories, symptoms
of trauma, the triune brain, trauma psychophysiology, safety and preventing re-traumatization, collaborative
relationships and therapeutic bonding, mindfulness and relaxation, school violence, crisis intervention, PTSD-
