Family engagement for sustainable recovery when dealing with trauma, and the after effects of trauma

[Episode 87 of The Intentional Clinician Podcast]

This is a podcast (audio only) version of Paul Krauss’ presentation: Family engagement for sustainable recovery when dealing with trauma, and the after-effects of trauma

This presentation discusses how to work with a family system that has experienced catastrophic occurrences or is currently dealing with stressful situations. To accomplish so, first, trauma is described via a scientific and sociological perspective; then, the repercussions of trauma on a person are explored, as well as the differences between PTSD, trauma, and stress. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) research is examined to see how it ties traumatic events to long-term unfavorable health events in the majority of people and family systems—and how these findings can assist doctors in better understanding their clients. The lecture then shifts its focus to the family’s living environment, the family’s habits, and the community in which they live as crucial factors in both understanding trauma and mental health.

The presentation concludes with tips on how clinicians can help families recover from the long-term effects of trauma, including how to work with families who have experienced environmental trauma, how to work with individuals who have experienced trauma that has impacted their mental health, and how to work with individuals who have experienced trauma that has impacted their mental health.
