Trauma and Individuals with Disabilities

This presentation from The 18th Annual Family Cafe this past June in Orlando explores the definition of trauma, and why everyone should be aware of the role it plays in our health and wellness. It examines what trauma is and some possible causes of trauma; the importance of taking trauma into consideration in all aspects of life and care; the potential effects of trauma; potential causes and the impact of trauma, especially on individuals with disabilities; available therapies for trauma; and an introduction to trauma-informed care. Available resources related to trauma-informed care are also provided.
