Reimagining Trauma – Morning Session @ Virtual Via Zoom
Mar 9 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

click here to register

Who should attend: Priority will be given to direct behavioral health provider staff such as peer supports, case managers, counselors/therapists, and nursing and medical staff.  However, in-direct staff such as reception, fiscal, front office, support staff, maintenance, housing, and any other non-clinically licensed individuals may also attend.

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the impact of trauma on the workforce and child serving systems.
  • Identify common elements, core components, and characteristics of trauma informed care as strategies for caring for the workforce.
  • Identify and define concepts that are foundational to building trauma informed systems including, but not limited to the adverse childhood experience, vicarious trauma and burnout, and the role of systems in supporting the workforce.
  • Identify potential strategies to include in a plan of self-care for individuals, supervisors, and organizations.
