workshop participants brainstorm

Students on a health care career path in the Laney College Biology Department discuss issues relevant to patient care.  How will we, as future health care workers, provide respectful care to all people?  How can we contribute to positive change in our health care system?

Join us for a workshop!  If you missed a workshop you are interested in, see sidebar for handouts and information.

What is Trauma Informed Care?

Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is an organizational structure and treatment framework that involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. It emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety for both consumers and providers, and helps survivors rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

Why talk about TIC?

I’ve organized this informal workshop (think more informational group discussion) on Trauma Informed Care, to start a much larger conversation on how we, as future and current health care providers, can participate and contribute to improving our health care system.


This will take place on May 10, 2019 from 11:00AM-12Noon in B-210.

All voices are welcome.  Please come and be heard if you can make it.

In peace,


talk to Rebecca to get on the schedule!


Is there a topic you’d like to discuss that you don’t see here, or one you’d like to see done again?  We believe everybody has something to add when talking about respectful care.  Maybe you’ve had an experience in health care you would want to change.  Or maybe you know something about a topic – like caring for a parent, or advocating for better care for children, or what respectful care looks like for people with disabilities. You can propose a workshop to talk with other students and share your experiences so that we can all learn and grow.  If you are interested in facilitating a future workshop, contact Rebecca Bailey ( Thinking of a topic but nervous to be a facilitator?  Check out Rebecca’s webpage.
