The course offers an overview of the current state of health care and its relationship to trauma based on what is known from the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) study. This course is for social workers and other human service professionals as well as doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and other medical professionals and volunteers who interface with the health care system. The benefits of implementing a trauma-informed approach in the health care system is an improvement in the symptomology for children, adolescents, and adults, and a decrease the frequency of re-traumatization for all involved including professionals. The benefits are not limited to this; rather they far exceed and provide a great amount of support and empowerment to all involved.
