Three Rivers College will host Trauma-Informed training from 2-4 p.m. on May 4, in room 108 of the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center on the Poplar Bluff campus. The event is open to the public.
The training will be conducted by Licensed Clinical Social Worker Carol Williams, who currently serves as the Quality Improvement Officer for FCC Behavioral Health. The training will assist participants in learning how to recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in patients, families, professionals, and a community.
“This training will serve to assist participants in recognizing the widespread impacts of trauma and develop an awareness that could assist in developing procedures and practice from a trauma-informed lens,” said Corey Reynolds, Coordinator of the Behavioral Health Support Program at Three Rivers. “Trauma-informed persons are better prepared to raise awareness about the widespread impacts of trauma and better work to avoid re-traumatization of traumatized persons.”
Williams has provided training on trauma and suicide in various settings, including the 2018 Missouri Behavioral Health Conference and the 2019 Regional Suicide Prevention Conference in Cape Girardeau.
