If We Use Restraint, Can We Really Say That We Are Offering Trauma-Informed Care?

Room: Cameron - 2nd Floor

Scroll down to view presentation materials and take the post-test/session evaluation.

This workshop particularly explores the relationship between trauma-informed care and restraint. Research evidence and what it does and does not tell us about the relationship between trauma-informed care and restraint will be presented along with Youth Development Institute’s (YDI) practice evidence on use of the Six Core Strategies© to eliminate restraints and enhance trauma-informed care.  Youth who have experienced care in multiple placements will also present their experiences and perspectives.
