WV PROJECT SCOPE ECHO SERIES- Session 5: Intergenerational Trauma and Infant Mental Health

3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Project SCOPE is a training initiative intended to identify and train practitioners in current and emerging knowledge and evidence-based promising practices in screening, monitoring, and care for children diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) or neonatal opiate withdrawal syndrome (NOWS), or who are suspected of being impacted by opioid use and related trauma exposure.

Project SCOPE uses a cohort model where interdisciplinary team members from education, medical and community settings collaborate to provide didactic and case presentations to have an opportunity to problem-solve with peers across the state. A cohort community allows participants to network, develop relationships and learn from others who are serving similar populations.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe intergenerational trauma occurring when traumatic effects are passed across generations without exposure to the original event
  • Identify interventions for addressing intergenerational trauma in relation to infant mental health and substance exposure
  • Learn how systems can ensure access to appropriate services after becoming trauma-informed

Participants can attend one, several or all sessions.
All sessions will be held from 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Target Audiences: Physicians, Nurses, Social Workers, Physical/Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapist, Psychologist, Home Visitors/Early Childhood (STARS), Students, Families, CPS, Judicial, Addiction & Prevention Professionals.

Continuing Education Credits Offered: Physician, Nursing, Social Work, STARS, PT, OT and WVAPP.
