Course Description: 

The Ripple Effect

This workshop presents an integrative framework for understanding and communicating across systems about how trauma can affect a child, a family, and a system. The Ripple Effect translates complex trauma concepts using metaphor, visual models, common language, and rich case examples and shows: 1) the domains of functioning affected by trauma; 2) the mechanisms through which trauma affects development, and 3) intervention pathways. This workshop offers foundational trauma knowledge for providers learning about evidence-based trauma treatments and highlights ways to share trauma theory with family members and across systems (e.g. schools, child welfare workers, mental health, medical practitioners, police) as we work jointly to lessen the impact of trauma exposure.


  • Participants will be able to name at least 3 domains of functioning that may be affected by trauma.
  • Participants will be able to name at least 2 core concepts related to the mechanism through which trauma affects development.
  • Participants will become familiar with the C.O.PE.S. framework.
  • Participants will be able to name two practice elements to enhance emotion regulation.
  • Participants will be able to name two factors that may affect individual variability in response to a traumatic event.
  • Participants will use the framework to identify at least three ways in which their current practice currently addresses the core trauma concepts.
