As we face the unknowns of the pandemic and attempt to instill hope, safety, and health- it can be a challenge navigating the heightened emotions and challenged functioning our clients and patients are presenting. This event was designed to help both mental health practitioners and medical providers better engage activated people in striving for their best health outcomes. By identifying the impact of dysregulated nervous systems and the barriers they pose to health, we can see how both Trauma Informed Interventions and supportive language can support the health outcomes of our most vulnerable patients.


  • To identify the ways in which the pandemic has de-stabilized mental health in many individuals, and how that has impacted health related access, utilization, and outcomes.

  • To offer participants some insights and considerations re: how the principles of Trauma Informed Care and Trauma Informed De-escalation can support providers’ efforts at engaging activated clients and patients.

  • To offer tips, scripts, and strategies for supporting clients and fellow colleagues in navigating this incredibly challenging and uncertain time.
