Join this free webinar from the Office on Women’s Health – The Handbook on Sensitive Practice for Health Care Practitioners: Lessons from Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse. This webinar is part of the series, The Impact of Trauma on Women and Girls Across the Lifespan, focused on “the impact of violence, abuse, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences” that can continue long after the traumatic event has ended.
After participating in this webinar participants will be able to:
1. List feelings and behaviors that adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse may bring into health care encounters.
2. Describe the principles that health care providers can use to facilitate positive health care encounters with trauma survivors.
3. Discuss the SAVE approach to managing difficult situations that trauma survivors may experience during health care encounters.
4. Discuss how task-centered inquiry and disclosure can be applied to assist both the patient and clinician to deal with potential difficult situations during health care encounters.
5. Discuss why all health care providers should ensure that they use trauma-informed care universally- with all patients, at all times.
