A Nice Little Change in the Norm

So today, the nursing school welcomed a group of wonderful trauma experts to conduct a seminar about Trauma Informed Care. I think there was a bit of confusion at first as to what type of “trauma” this meant: some people were thinking gnarly wound trauma, others were expecting traumatic disorders, but this was about practically every type of trauma imaginable (except gnarly wounds). Today these professionals spoke to us about helping patients to properly cope with their trauma. It seems as though many people who work in clinics and other help settings don’t know the proper treatments for their patients. It seems a bit like common sense to me, but I guess, when things get heated quickly common sense isn’t the first to surface.
We heard many different types of presentations today: an overview of dealing with trauma, how to properly treat post traumatic patients, and a very special presentation from a man who suffered horrendous happenings and ineffectively dealt with his trauma for years. I always find the “true life” stories so intriguing. I also thought that this was a really interesting topic and would like to know more. I think all of the topics today are very applicable to nursing, since nursing is such an intimate occupation with people who are hurting in many types of ways. I’m very thankful that we were able to be a part of this seminar today; it was a reminder to me of how blessed I am that I was not exposed to anything so many people are, and have to go through such hurt.
I hope that during our time at nursing school brings more seminars on topics like this. Any additional insight and teaching is a great thing to have as we keep exploring for our passion. I really enjoyed today, I don’t know about anyone else. It just makes me thankful, for lots of things I guess.
