Given the amount of trauma youth and adults have experienced, it’s crucial for behavioral health and social service providers to understand common trauma responses and how they may manifest.

Although fight, flight, and freeze are more commonly known there is more acknowledgment of the fawn response. This training will provide an overview of these common trauma responses, how they manifest and how to support youth and adults experiencing them. Participants will also learn strategies to educate clients about trauma responses, so they understand how they show up in their lives and impede their functioning at home, school, work and other settings.
