The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reports that, “Psychological trauma is a pivotal force that shapes people's mental, emotional and physical well-being. Because trauma stems from violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, terrorism and war, nearly every family is impacted in some way. Trauma-informed care (TIC) provides a new perspective where those providing the support shift from asking "What is wrong with you?" to "What has happened to you?" This change reduces the blame and shame that some people experience when being labeled. It also builds an understanding of how the past impacts the present, which effectively makes the connections that progress toward healing and recovery.”  This conference presented by a team of 6 mental health professionals,  will provide participants with an overview of four different specialized treatment approaches for targeting trauma symptoms.  These are Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing.
