Trauma-Informed Care: Optimizing the Role of TIC in Mainstream Clinical Practice
Harvard Medical School’s Department of Global and Continuing Education accredits an exciting one-day online course entitled Trauma-Informed Care (TIC): Optimizing the Role of TIC in Mainstream Clinical Practice. In this course, a multidisciplinary group of experts will present on optimizing the role of trauma-informed care in mainstream clinical practice. The number of traumatized patients in a primary healthcare setting is estimated at 23% of all patient visits. This includes early life experiences related to childhood abuse, gender-based violence, and the tragedies experienced in everyday life, including serious medical illnesses. This course includes not only a comprehensive introduction to the TIC model, but also culturally-valid and evidence-based instruments to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of culturally diverse patients. The TIC physical exam, the neuroscience of trauma, stress, and resiliency, counseling, the Trauma Story, coping with the challenges of emergency nursing, and self-care will be addressed.
