Series description:

ISMA Women in Medicine (WIM) Discussion Forum sessions take place on Tuesdays every other month and are scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. ET via Zoom. All female members of ISMA are welcome to join to connect, network and discuss topics of special significance to female physicians today.

Program description:

Trauma-informed care (TIC) provides guiding principles to effectively put kindness into action when responding to the psychosocial effects of trauma by creating ways to deliver appropriately sensitive services to those affected by trauma and to nurture their resilience.  TIC anticipates the role that trauma can play across the continuum of care—establishing integrated and/or collaborative processes to address the needs of traumatized individuals and communities proactively.

Self-care practices remind us to take care of the fundamental tool for the work we do: ourselves. Engaging in self-care practices is an opportunity to role-model the self-respect, healthy boundaries, and social-emotional skills we are trying to teach the people and communities we serve. In this session, Dr. Shannon Jones will address the role of trauma-informed care in modern healthcare.


At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Expand their general knowledge of Trauma Informed Care (TIC) and its role in modern healthcare.
  • Comprehend how trauma changes the brain and behavior.
  • Apply TIC principles to improve success while interacting with traumatized individuals.
  • Employ methods to manage the vicarious trauma that physicians and their team colleagues will inevitably encounter.
