Understanding the Impact of Trauma & Poverty on Families: Risk, Resilience and Intervention

Overview: Many families adjust to enormous challenges and hardships and, in the best of circumstances, demonstrate positive adaptations. However, repeated traumatic experiences can also lead to persistent distress at every level, ultimately interfering with the family’s capacity to serve its protective function. Using the established framework of individual complex trauma, this workshop examines the impact of chronic or ongoing trauma exposures on family responses and functioning. Understanding the clinical characteristics associated with this adaptation process helps clinicians and families partner to develop trauma-focused family service plans. Using case materials to illustrate this conceptual model, participants will review implications for assessment, case conceptualization, treatment planning, and intervention.

Laurel J. Kiser, Ph.D., M.B.A. is a psychologist, Associate Professor, and Principal Investigator of the Family Informed Trauma Treatment (FITT) Center, a National Child Traumatic Stress Network Category II Center in the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Dr, Kiser is the lead author of the conceptual model of complex trauma in families. Partnering with Dr. Charles Figley, she co-authored the 2nd edition of Helping Traumatized Families. Dr. Kiser received support from the National Institute of Mental Health and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to develop family-based interventions to address the high rates of trauma exposure and the prevalence of trauma-related disorders related to poverty. Strengthening Family Coping Resources: Intervention for Families Impacted by Trauma is the culmination of her 20+ years working to address the needs of this highly impacted population.

We’ve all been there – an individual in crisis needs your help, but they are too angry, scared, or anxious to get the help they need. You know you need to calm them down – but are unsure how to help.

This workshop teaches strategies to be more effective in situations such as this and is ideal for mental health professionals, health and social service workers, school personnel, parents/foster parents, and healthcare workers.

In this workshop, participants will learn about new approaches to interacting with individuals who are experiencing a crisis situation. Participants will learn to:

  • Assess the situation
  • Plan an intervention
  • Debrief following an incident

Participants will take away the following tools:

  • Verbal de-escalation strategies
  • Decision making strategies
  • Managing emotions during a crisis
  • Setting limits

Participants will also learn about the risks and realities of restraint use. The workshop will be interactive. Participants will leave with a workbook including an Action Plan with strategies you can begin to use immediately.

Tools and concepts included in this workshop have been adapted from the more comprehensive CPI Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training program.
