Embracing Resilience: Unmasking our Trauma for Exceptional Care, featuring Dr. Amy King
In this week’s episode, I am joined by Dr. Amy King, a licensed psychologist who provides training, consultation and education, to discuss how trauma impacts medicine and how to recognize our own trauma to better serve those in our care. She also works with healthcare organizations around wellness, staff vitality and creating trauma-responsive spaces.
Among her specialties is working with professionals to help create resilient children, patients, and thriving families, guiding them to heal their stress and trauma through connected relationships. Her experience includes serving as a statewide trainer for the Oregon Department of Human Services, Child Welfare, and subject matter expert to promote child wellness in pediatric settings on behalf of Children’s Health Alliance. Her current work is promoting resilience within primary care medical homes through partnership and collaboration. Dr. Amy & her team serve folks who aim to be champions in connected spaces. When she’s not working to promote resilience, you can find her with her family on their small hobby farm in Newberg, Oregon.

- What trauma informed care is and how to manage it
