W-3 - Transformative Care: Understanding the Biological Basis of Trauma/Toxic Stress and How to Work with Patients Who Have Developmental Trauma in relation to Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. Part 1 of 2

Tuesday, October 9
7:45 AM - 9:00 AM
CE: NAB: 1.25 | Nurses 1.25

Moving beyond Trauma Informed Care is understanding the biological basis of trauma/toxic stress and the impact it has on our patients, staff, and co-workers. Attendees will be introduced to the Adverse Childhood Studies (ACE’s) and the impact ACE’s has upon adults in relationship to chronic mental and medical health conditions. Attendees will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system functioning and learn ways to self-regulate and then assist patients who are sympathetically dominant to self-regulate. This information and the associated techniques are also effective when caring for patients/residents who have outbursts or may have aggressive behaviors. Attendees will discuss how medical and mental health professionals perpetuate health disparities for addicts through archaic beliefs that are not in synch with the latest research and science about trauma and toxic stress.
