The Chesapeake Life Center invites the community to the 16th Annual Emily Schindler Memorial Lecture, “Trauma-Informed Care Through the Lifespan,” presented by Joanna J. Frankel, MSW, LCSW-C. The conference will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28 at the Owen Brown Interfaith Center, 7246 Cradlerock Way, Columbia, Maryland.
Trauma impacts all domains of functioning, including physical, mental, behavioral and social. Trauma-informed care means treating the whole person while understanding their traumatic experiences from birth to present day. This innovative seminar will allow participants to see trauma throughout life and help them understand why it is essential to get to know the child before the elder.
In this workshop, Frankel will explain the role of trauma assessments and the impact that trauma at a young age can have on an older person. Frankel will also identify symptoms and diagnoses that manifest as a result of trauma and demonstrate a plan of care that can minimize re-traumatization.
This annual conference was established in 2005 through a gift to the Schindler family of the Saint Agnes Cancer Center. Emily Schindler was an 18-year-old freshman at Frostburg State University and a member of the SPY swim team in Severna Park, Maryland when she was tragically killed in a car accident in 2004.
