Trauma Informed Care Lecture Pack: Your Opportunity to Support Healing

With add-on lecture packs, you can enrich your learning experience at GOLD conferences. These packages offer an excellent opportunity to supplement your conference experience and increase your knowledge base in key areas related to your field of work.

This year at GOLD Perinatal, we’re thrilled to share with you our Trauma Informed Care Lecture Pack 2017. More than ever, we are realizing the lasting impact of trauma and how often we are encountering clients working through issues related to past trauma. In this lecture pack, you’ll have the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of how trauma impacts perinatal families and you’ll develop practical skills for supporting clients.

We’re thrilled to have such an outstanding line up of speakers sharing their expertise in this lecture pack. Jodi Hall’s presentation “Unpacking the concept of ‘Holding Space’: Beyond rhetoric toward action in supporting survivors of trauma in the childbearing years” will explore the concept of holding space and will share practical applications for this skill. In “Breastfeeding and Survivors of Adverse Childhood Events” Kathleen Kendall-Tackett will present on Adverse Childhood Experiences research and what this information means for breastfeeding families. Maureen Campion’s presentation “Healing Birth Stories for Professionals” will offer an opportunity to learn about supporting healing and transformation. “Trauma-Informed Care in the Perinatal Period” from Mickey Sperlich will look at current recommendations, best practices, and specific applications for working with individuals during the perinatal period. Monnica Williams will present on race-based trauma and how it impacts birth in “Microaggressions and Racial Trauma During Childbirth”. We’ll also hear from Shannon Kane with “Psychological Birth Trauma: Causes, Assessment, and Treatment.”.

Join us for this lecture pack to access these presentations and to develop the skills needed to bring precise, compassionate care to families with a history of trauma. Lecture pack presentations are available as recordings throughout the conference period, giving plenty of flexibility and accessibility.
