ENTER Webinar 2024:1 - Trauma Informed Care - 23rd of January 2024, CET: 5 pm - 7 pm.

ENTER will hold its first webinar of 2024 on the 23rd of January 2024, CET: 5 pm - & 7 pm.  The theme for the webinar on Trauma Informed Care. 

Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) is an approach in the human service field that assumes that an individual is more likely than not to have a history of trauma. Trauma-Informed Care recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role trauma may play in an individual’s life- including service staff. Within this approach to care, it is acknowledges that health care organizations and care teams need to have a complete picture of a patient’s life situation — past and present — in order to provide effective health care services with a healing orientation. Adopting trauma-informed practices can potentially improve patient engagement, treatment adherence, and health outcomes, as well as provider and staff wellness. It can also help reduce avoidable care and excess costs for both the health care and social service sectors.

There are two presentations planned, the speakers will be:

Marie Carey: Advanced Nurse Practitioner and PhD Student at Trinity College Dublin

Topic: Exploring people’s experiences of suicidal imagery and the potential role of CBT-SP (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy-Suicide Prevention) Imagery Intervention - The SUMI Study.

Monika Bohinec: University of Ljubljana, Faculty of social work

Topic: Trauma-informed social work in the context of the Slovenian social care sector: centres of social work and non-governmental organisations in the field of violence, mental health and addiction

These presentations will be followed by a conversation on Trauma Informed Care in Europe.  It is hoped the webinar will feed into the next ENTER conference schedulled for Warsaw in June 2024.  ​
