Description: A global pandemic, the fight for social justice, and significant system transformation has impacted the children, youth, and families in ways that are not yet clear. In addition, these drivers have had an unprecedented impact on workforce that requires a new vision for moving forward. Reimaging Trauma will explore the strategies to manage the current challenges and how trauma impacts individuals and the systems that serve children, youth, and families. This training will assist you in understanding how your own experiences impact your interaction with others in the work environment. Being aware of how you interact (what you say and how you communicate it) with people seeking services at your organization is important to how the person feels about the agency, their services, and even whether they return. Reimaging trauma is about you, your work, your health, and your life.
