Rates of post traumatic stress disorder and exposure to violence among incarcerated males and females in the U.S. are exponentially higher than rates among the general population; yet, abrupt detoxification from substances, the pervasive authoritative presence, and sensory and environmental trauma triggers can pose a threat to individual and institutional stability during incarceration and post-incarceration treatment.
This training explores the unique challenges and promises of trauma informed correctional care and suggest strategies for administrative support, staff development, programming and relevant clinical approaches.
There will be two sessions, one at St. Joseph’s main Inpatient campus in Saranac Lake on January 16, at 10:00 am in our classroom; the other at Paul Smith’s College, 7777 Route 30 in Paul Smith’s, New York 12970 on January 17, at 9:00 am.
