Trauma-competent Care Summit

Trauma-informed CareOhioMHAS and Department of Developmental Disabilities hosts Trauma-competent Care (TCC) Summits on an annual basis. The purpose of the annual Summit is to move our systems beyond trauma informed to trauma competence. This event is attended by individuals with lived-experience; primary healthcare professionals; clergy; mental health professionals; developmental disability professionals; psychiatric hospital staff; regional TCC collaboratives; peer support specialists; and more. 

Goals of this summit include: describe the benefits of being a “trauma-competent care” agency/organization; establishing priorities in their systems/practices based on the TCC framework for implementing a trauma-competent care approach; recognizing that transformation of systems requires transformation of the people who work within them; identifying pre-existing values, attitudes, beliefs and experiences related to trauma; and identifying and implement principles of a trauma-competent care approach.
