Putting Trauma-Informed Care into Practice in the Perinatal Setting- (Part 3 of 3) – Birth Trauma Mitigation and Use of the Plan of Safe Care in Supportive Communication

Self-paced available September 29, 2021 through September 29, 2024

Sponsor: Dartmouth-Hitchcock

In this 3 hour self-paced workshop, participants will expand their awareness of trauma-informed care and compassionate communication and the impact it has on caring for families in the perinatal setting. We will examine the evidence behind and foundations of the trauma-informed lens to identify the purpose for compassionate communication and equitable care, the barriers to it, and the strategies and skills needed to improve upon it. We will use real world, challenging scenarios to examine habits and build new pathways to interacting with clients and patients to effectively express compassion and improve the quality of care. The population of focus will be families affected by trauma, health inequity, perinatal substance exposure and birth trauma.
