Safety without Restraints: Trauma Informed Care Conference on March 9, 2015

Janice LeBel, Ph.D., ABPP and Joan Gillece, Ph.D. have long been in the forefront of a national movement to reduce the use of seclusion and restraint for people with disabilities. Their focus on trauma informed care acknowledges the fact that trauma significantly impacts many people with developmental disabilities. This training is intended to examine the effects of trauma on individuals with disabilities and those around them with the aim of creating a culture of care that is nurturing and supportive. We are thrilled to be able to bring these great speakers to RI!

This conference is sponsored by the RI Developmental Disabilities Council (RIDDC), Sherlock Center on Disabilities, RI Department of Education, RI Department of Behavioral Health, Developmental Disabilities and Hospitals, and the RI Department of Children, Youth and Families.
