Module 1A: Understanding Trauma Informed Care for APS Supervisors

Back to Supervisor Core

Course Description:

In Adult Protective Services, it’s very likely that the members of the population we serve have lived through traumatic experiences and exposure to trauma. 

In this foundational 90-minute eLearning, 4-hour instructor led training, and 30 minute Transfer of Learning Activity on a trauma-informed framework for APS supervisors, will explore a trauma-informed care approach from biological, programmatic, and policy levels. Each modality can be taken separately or together for a more in-depth experience.

Upon completion of this course participants will understand the definition of trauma, the ACEs study and its impact on trauma across the lifespan, the link between trauma and adult maltreatment, and some practical tips and tools for supervisors and staff to use on the job.
