Families face risks for addiction, child sexual abuse, violence, and other major causes of toxic stress. This course will review the evidence provided by research and teach participants how to integrate interventions to reduce risks and build resiliency into their practice.
Areas of focus for the course will include the impact of risk factors on individuals, families, and communities. From there the interventions that can be used to reduce these risks will be discussed including examples of how to implement them into practice. Research on the current understanding of efforts of building resiliency versus reducing risks if further discussed in the context of using the information in a psychoeducational way. The clinical use of these strategies, handouts, and Socratic values-based questioning will be completed.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Identify risk factors & protective factors and provide examples while identifying intervention
- Identify the impact of ACES on communities, families, and individuals
- Identify risk factors for sexual assault and provide intervention for use with families
- Identify prevention (resiliency) for individuals, families, and communities
This course qualifies for 3 CE hours of General Skill Building and Evidence-Based Practices training.
