Event Overview

Children involved in youth justice, education, child welfare and mental health services have experienced or been exposed to traumatic events. These events interfere with the way we think, feel and act. Some children have emotional, behavioural, social and mental health challenges that require special care, support services and treatment. Professionals from mental health, public health, child welfare, justice, and health require an understanding of how traumatic experiences impact individuals to better understand trauma and trauma reactions. A trauma-informed workforce seeks to change the paradigm from ‘What’s wrong with you?’ to ‘What’s happened to you?’ Being trauma-informed guides our interactions and decision-making processes.
