Trauma-Informed Care Training

June 20, 2023 | 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EDT

Join the National Council of Urban Indian Health as we dive into the crucial topic of Trauma-Informed Care. Trauma-informed care is a framework that aims to establish secure healthcare environments. When catering to American Indian and Alaskan Native communities, trauma-informed care should acknowledge the influence of historical trauma and our resilience and cultural connections to create culturally safe care.


  1. Discussing the historical timeline and governmental policy implications in American Indian history sheds light on their past.
  2. Evaluating the effects of stress and trauma on American Indian health, including epigenetic changes, reveals their unique challenges.
  3. Explaining the principles of trauma-informed care and its relevance to healthcare requirements of the American Indian and Alaskan Native population.
  4. Examining trauma-informed care within cultural safety allows for a comprehensive analysis.
