    This presentation explores major concepts underlying a trauma-informed approach in any setting. Human trauma can stem from many places including loss, natural or human driven disaster, unwanted change, abuse, neglect or violence exposure. Join us as we peer through the lens of trauma to challenge our thinking about human behavior and our responses to it.
