In an effort to better understand and treat children and families who have experienced trauma, Pressley Ridge has been implementing a trauma-informed approach to all aspects of the organization. Trauma-Informed Care at Pressley Ridge provides the foundation for a basic understanding of the psychological, neurological, biological, and social impact that trauma and violence has on individuals and incorporates proven practices into current organizational operations to deliver services that acknowledge the role that trauma plays.
To begin the discussion internally and with the community, Pressley Ridge is hosting a two-day training titled “Trauma-Informed Care: Theory and Practice.” The conference will focus on The Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) and Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) two trauma-informed practices that help professionals accurately understand the impact of trauma on brain development in children and youth, and provide clinical direction to address the complex needs of trauma survivors.
The training will take place on April 22 and 23 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Embassy Suites, 550 Cherrington Parkway, Coraopolis, PA 15108. See the flyer for more details and complete the registration below.
