This training will emphasize the importance of providing person-centered and trauma-informed care as a vital component to ensuring care recipients are involved in and respected for their individual differences and past traumatic experiences. Placing people at the center of their care has multiple benefits including improving the quality of services provided, helping people obtain the care they need when they need it, empowering people to be more active in their care, and reducing some of the pressures experienced by those working in law enforcement, protective agencies, and the helping professions. The training is tailored with the goal of better serving Colorado’s most vulnerable community members and their families while continuing to embrace a culture of partnership, collaboration, and individual empowerment.
