From Trauma to Healing; Building a Trauma Sensitive Approach to Service Delivery

There is a growing awareness that trauma is pervasive and that the impact of trauma is often deep and life shaping. Trauma and toxic stress are often at the center of a person's mental health challenges, substance use, physical health issues and/or involvement with the justice system. This means, whether or not it is fully recognized, staff at our school districts are working with survivors of trauma.

Creating a trauma-informed system requires not only understanding the impact of trauma, but implementing changes in the service delivery that align with the five core principles of trauma-centered safety: safety, trust, choice, collaboration and empowerment.

This consultation proposal aims to support staff through increasing their knowledge and capacity around the essential elements of a trauma-informed system and how that understanding can be applied to their daily practice and organizational culture.

Day 1: Grief and Loss; Trauma
Day 2: Suicide Assessment; Chronic Illness
Days 3 & 4: Group Crisis Response Skills (Critical Incident Stress Management)
Day 5: Threat Assessment Management; Infrastructure Development and Implementation

You must register by December 9, 2022 to ensure the workshop can occur.
