Virtual: What Trauma-Informed Care Has to Offer Us in the Time of Crisis

Sponsor: North Country Health Consortium/ Northern NH Area Health Education Center and NH Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors Association

A 2 hour training with Cassie Yackley, Psy.D.

PRESENTATION:   Most professional associations and governmental organizations that support human service delivery have embraced a set of principles that describe a commitment to “trauma-informed care (TIC).”  SAMHSA set forth a set of six interdependent standards to guide practices in a manner that recognizes the prevalence and impacts of trauma and does not inadvertently “re-traumatize” their clients and staff.  Given we are all living through a mass crisis, TIC has a tremendous amount to offer us all in managing the current circumstances.  In this session Cassie Yackley will identify trauma informed responses to the global crisis and identify practical applications for those working with our most vulnerable populations.


  • Recognize potential impacts the pandemic has for retraumatizing our vulnerable populations at risk.  
  • Identify strategies to support clients/patients during the pandemic and beyond using the lens of trauma informed care (TIC).
  • Implement practical assessment tools to support trauma responsive change for those at risk for substance abuse and mental health concerns.
