Spotlight on Trauma-Informed Care
On Monday May 1, 2017, Dr. Karyn Harvey will present "Honoring the Humanity of Those We Support" at the 2017 START National Training Institute alongside Jason Tuell, MSW (NC START Central) and Lisa Wolfe, MSW, LCSWA (NC START East). This workshop will explore ways to use positive psychology techniques when working with individuals with IDD. Techniques explored will include the application of trauma-informed care, the power of positive regard, acceptance, the “joining” approach, and cultural competency. The use of these alternative approaches will be described in the context of training direct support professionals as well as working directly with individuals with IDD/MH.
Frontline InitiativeToday's resource on Trauma-Informed Care features an Introduction by Dr. Karyn Harvey, an article about Trauma-Informed Care and the START model by Tarrant County's Lacey Eaton, MAPC, LPC-I, and several resources for Direct Support Professionals.

Frontline Initiative: Trauma-Informed Care Frontline Initiative is a publication of the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals.
