This webinar will address the prevalence of trauma in the criminal justice system and justice-involved veterans, and also address the variety of experiences that could correlate to PTSD. In addition, participants will receive information on recognizing some symptoms of PTSD and co-occurring conditions related to trauma exposure. Information will also be presented on recognizing trauma exposure that does not rise to the level of the diagnosis of PTSD and the principles of Trauma-Informed Practice (SAMHSA).
