Establishing Trauma-Free Care

Lyn Blackshaw, Ph.D., of Oregon Mental Health and Addiction Services, Janice Perciano, and Benita Presley

When you experience severe emotional trauma, you feel that important aspects of your life have become unpredictable and out of your control. When that trauma is caused or made worse by people you expected would be caring and supportive then the impact is even more powerful. Trauma, whether at the hands of care givers in childhood or triggered by care providers in agencies is extremely damaging. When a person experiences both early abuse/neglect and adult re-traumatization, the experience can be devastating. In this workshop we'll present and discuss what you can do to protect yourself from re-traumatization and what's needed to recover from the effects of trauma.
