How does evidence influence practice? Understanding trauma from a perspective for consumers, providers, and advocates

Friday, June 3, 2016: 8:00 AM-12:00 PM
Broadway III/IV (Hilton Portland)
Consumers, providers, and advocates offer a rich and incredibly important role in serving the diverse needs of people experiencing homelessness. With life experience of real-world challenges, consumer advocates are a deep and credible source to best support people in moving from the experience of homelessness to permanent housing stability and life transformation. Critical to their work is grounding in the evidence-based practices that have been shown to be most beneficial in working with people experiencing homelessness. This Learning Lab, requested by the National Consumer Advisory Board (NCAB) leadership, will provide an introduction to the philosophy, knowledge, and skills of evidence-based practices in trauma-informed care. The team of trainers from the Center for Social Innovation's t3 training institute will tailor the learning to the unique learning needs of consumer professionals and advocates. We will involve the consumer perspective through various methods, including active discussion with attendees and case examples.
