PRESENTATION:   Stressed people get “hijacked” by their minds.   While we all deal with stress, chronic stress and post-traumatic stress are linked to poor health outcomes and impact the quality of life.   People experience internal or external triggers, become overwhelmed, and turn to substance use and other unhealthy behavior patterns to cope.  This often leads to a demoralizing cycle of psychological and emotional pain and efforts to avoid the pain.  The repetitive avoidance and numbing strategies, while providing short-term relief, only increase the suffering in the long run as people become less and less effective in living. This training will provide overview of stress and traumatic stress and its links to substance and behavioral addictions.  As a result of attending this training participants will:

  1. Describe physical and mental symptoms of stress and trauma
  2. Identify differences between trauma history and diagnosis of PTSD
  3. Describe link between stress, trauma and behavioral healthcare goal
