Resilience Informed Service Environments (RISE) Learning Community: Informational Webinar
When: Thursday, February 15 - 12:00 PM
Duration: 1 hours
There is an urgent need to explore the connection between resilience and the growing field of trauma-informed care. “They really are the two sides of the same coin,” reports McSilver’s Trauma-Informed Care Leader, Dr. James Rodriguez.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are common; nearly two-thirds of adults have experienced at least one. Having adversity in childhood can have lasting effects on an individual’s life. Chronic disease, such as cancer and heart disease, mental illness, violence, being a victim of violence, and financial and social problems are all linked to having ACEs (acestoohigh.org). Attending to adversity and trauma in childhood is akin to the prevention of mental illness. Focusing on resilience is an important component of wellness and is one of the main highlights of our upcoming Learning Community opportunity.
In this webinar, you will learn about the RISE Learning Community that is designed to support organizations committed to addressing the needs of clients affected by adverse events and conditions. You will receive information about participation in the Learning Community, including the application process, goals and objectives, and what participation in the learning community will entail. The RISE Learning Community was created by our CTAC clinical team as a resource for organizations to use to focus on aspects of resilience and its relationship to trauma-informed care.
