Program: Professional Development

Audience: Administrators, Counselors, Psychologists, Communications Staff

Dates: 9/15/2022 to 12/15/2022

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
Day 2: Trauma
Day 3: Suicide Assessment
Day 4: Chronic Illness
Day 5: Threat Assessment
Days 6 & 7: Group Crisis Response Skills (Critical Incident Stress Management) IN-PERSON
Day 8: Infrastructure Development and Implementation

You must register by August 30, 2022 to ensure the workshop can occur.
