The physician speakers share opportunities and guidance for providing trauma-informed care via telehealth as well as resources providers can offer to patients to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 related stress on physical and mental health. This is particularly critical for patients who have experienced, or who are currently experiencing, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) or other adversities. Futures Without Violence shares resources providers can offer to patients who are experiencing domestic violence.

This is the third in a series of monthly educational webinars that offer practical information for primary care and behavioral health providers on providing trauma-informed care.
