Trauma-informed care is a hot topic these days, both within the POCA coop and in the larger world of healthcare. The good punks of Milwaukie Community Acupuncture organized a workshop about trauma-informed care with a trainer who specializes in veteran culture and working with veterans, and then they were kind enough to film the workshop and share the video and the course materials with the rest of us. We hope you enjoy this valuable presentation and that it helps you serve the veterans in your community.

This course includes handouts and the video presentation by Patricia Clason of Healing Warrior Hearts.

If you have any questions about this class or the material, please feel free to email me, Lisa Rohleder. You can leave a message with Gail at ceu@pocatech.org.
