CPD Accredited Webinar: What Is Trauma-Informed Care, and Why Is It So Important? with Eden Dales

Jellinek Ellis Gluckstein Lawyers' 2nd Annual Supporting Survivors of Sexual Abuse Conference: Innovative and Emerging Pathways to Healing took place using a hybrid model, on November 29, 2023, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Jellinek Ellis Gluckstein Lawyers employs a survivor-centred approach, recognizing the unique needs and challenges survivors face. Our lawyers work daily to create a safe and supportive environment where survivors can share their stories and seek guidance without judgment. This event is another way to help make the voices of survivors heard and find ways to support them on their journey forward.

What Is Trauma-Informed Care, and Why Is It So Important?, presented by Eden Dales, MSW, RSW, covers various aspects of trauma, including different types of trauma (such as developmental, childhood, and accident trauma) and their impact on the brain. It will also explore the stress response and emotional regulation for both individuals and their supporters. The session will provide insights into how to effectively support someone who has experienced trauma to enhance their recovery while avoiding re-traumatization. Core concepts of trauma-informed care will be reviewed, and the relevance of emotional intelligence to trauma-informed care will be discussed. Finally, the presentation will offer practical tools and resources for immediate application to support both oneself and others in the aftermath of trauma.
