Trauma Informed Care for Women South Florida Workshop

Date and Time:

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 - 08:30 AM - 04:00 PM


In this workshop, the impact of trauma exposure on the expression of mental health symptoms in women will be discussed.  A history of trauma treatment will be briefly covered. However, the emphasis in this presentation will be on applied strategies to identify and address traumatic experience in pregnant and parenting women.  Rates and types of co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders in women will be described.  Evidence-based practices, related to the treatment of trauma, and the associated research that has emerged over the past fifteen years, will be reviewed. 

Who should attend?

This webinar is designed for clinicians, clinical supervisors, program managers and executives in substance abuse, mental health, prevention agencies, Managing Entities and DCF program staff.

Presented by:

Holly Hills, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist, received her Ph.D. in Clinical and Health Psychology from the University of Florida. She is currently Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Mental Health Law and Policy, College of Behavioral and Community Sciences, University of South Florida, Tampa.  Over the past twenty years, Dr. Hills has worked with communities and jurisdictions throughout the country to assist them in improving care for women with histories of trauma and adolescent and adult populations who have co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.  She has worked as a senior consultant with the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice (NCMHJJ), the National GAINS Center, the TAPA Center, and the National Drug Court Training Institute. 

Dr. Hills has also been a principal investigator or collaborator on work funded by SAMHSA, NIDA, AHCA, the MacArthur Foundation, and from other state and local sources.  Her work has involved process and outcome evaluations related to innovation in community-based service settings, trauma experience, and service integration for persons with co-occurring disorders. She has evaluated the cost benefits of retention in substance abuse treatment as it relates to access and service utilization in the physical health care system, the identification of substance use risk in pregnant women, and paths to and access to care in opioid-dependent populations.   A significant portion of her work has focused on the interface between the justice and community-based behavioral health care systems.
