Trauma-Informed Nutrition: Principles and Application of TI Care to the Field of Dietetics
Psychological trauma is a pervasive and harmful public health issue. Its impacts can be lasting and severe without proper intervention and prevention. Due to the high prevalence of trauma, registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN) are likely to experience clients, patients, and community members who have histories of trauma; therefore, it is critical and urgent for dietetic professionals to integrate trauma-informed approaches into practice.
This recorded webinar (length 2 hours) will discuss the application of trauma-informed principles to clinical, counseling, and community dietetic work.
After successfully completing this course, you will:
- Understand trauma and its biological impacts and will discuss the Substance Abuse
- Understand the Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) principles of trauma-informed care including safety and transparency, empowerment, voice and choice, and peer support.
