Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope. It causes feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, diminishes a person’s sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of experiences and emotions. It can be caused by a variety of events, including but not limited to; the untimely death of a loved one, neighborhood violence, domestic violence, chronic pain, natural disasters, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, and military combat. PTSD is an anxiety disorder that develops in some people after witnessing or experiencing a terrifying event. Although recent research has revealed that nearly 90 percent of people in the United States have experienced one or more traumatic events, there are no objective criteria to evaluate which events will cause post trauma symptoms. “The Invisible Injury: Understanding the Impact of Complex Trauma and PTSD” is an intense trauma informed care workshop which incorporates instruction, individual reflection, small group discussion pairs (virtual break-out sessions as it applies), large group discussion and/or video snippets to offer participants the training and support needed in their day-to-day work with children and adults.
