Culture Awareness and Trauma
$5.00 | CE Hours:1.00 | Beginning
CEU Course Description
Extracted from a guide created by the National Center on Trauma-Informed Care as a technical assistance document to help make trauma-informed peer support available to women who receive or have received services in behavioral health or other human service systems.
This course provides basic information about how cultural considerations impact the meaning a person makes of their experiences and can affect both the experiences of trauma and the development of peer support relationships. This course also explores how assumptions about others can affect peer support, and how services sometimes fail women of color, refugees and immigrants, people who live in rural areas, and women viewed as “different” because of sexual orientation, religion, or other cultural factors.
1. Evaluate how culture impacts a woman’s life and identity, shapes how she makes meaning of her experiences, and often determines her view about seeking help.
2. Describe how racial or cultural biases can impact a peer supporter’s interaction with trauma survivors.
3. Differentiate between common cultural mistakes pertaining to trauma and culturally sensitive approaches.
4. Discuss how peer supporters can create space in their conversations for individuals to explore and define their cultural identity.
