Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is a multi-part training focused on expanding the practice, knowledge, and skill of psychologists who work in Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs in Los Angeles County. This training introduces the neurochemical stress response system (NSRS) to participants, and then proceeds to explore how human responses to stress, fear, and trauma can be both adaptive and protective, as well as having negative impacts. In an effort to counter the negative impacts of stress, trauma, and fear, this training reviews resiliency factors and how these factors can vary from person to person. This training looks at a continuum of responses to stress, trauma, and fear from motivating to debilitating. To counter the negative impact of stress, trauma, and fear, this training reviews resiliency factors and how these factors can vary from person to person. Each participant is given an opportunity to identify their own resiliency factors and discuss how to further strengthen their resilience. In working with people facing serious struggles with mental illness, the course demonstrates how relationships, safety, trust, and control facilitate a path to recovery. Finally, a brief overview will be provided of specific treatment options and diagnoses related to stress, fear, and trauma.
