In the next session of Hot Topics in Practice, Karolyn Holden shares how her rural public health agency took deliberate steps toward building a more trauma-informed practice.

Health professionals across the country are gaining a greater understanding of how childhood trauma impacts adult health outcomes and are transforming their organizations to address these issues. In the March session of Hot Topics in Practice, Karolyn Holden, Director, Grays Harbor County Public Health and Social Services, shares how her agency is taking deliberate steps toward building a more trauma-informed practice.

In this one-hour webinar, Holden will review how her organization is applying trauma-informed principles to improve client interactions, the physical environment, and their expectations of each other. She will also share challenges and successes encountered along the way, providing insights into how these efforts have developed in the context of a small, rural agency.
