Course Description:

The effects of unresolved or under resolved post-traumatic stress are increasingly recognized as contributing to the co-incidence of mental/emotional and substance use disorders which accumulate over a lifetime. For older adults, additional risk factors can further complicate effective treatment. Session will address the likelihood of the occurrence of post-traumatic stress in older adults, how trauma-informed principles are important to apply in the provision of behavioral health care services and will describe three evidence-based trauma-resolution treatment approaches.
