Trauma Informed Care For Direct Services
Instructor: Erica Reed
70% of adults have been impacted by trauma. It’s important to note that “adults” includes the clients whom you serve, as well as the team members within your organization. In response to the growing awareness of the impact of trauma on individuals’ thoughts, emotional responses, relationships and decision making it’s become the expectation, not the exception, that organizations operate from a Trauma Informed Care perspective. In fact, HUD has accepted the framework provided by SAMHSA in defining trauma and the best practices of organizational response.
This training will provide key information to the leadership team on the impact of trauma and how it shapes clients’ ability to successfully utilize the services offered by the organization. In addition, this training will define the guiding principles of Trauma Informed Care which shape organizational decisions and interactions, and provide step by step instructions on how to implement Trauma Informed Care within the organization. You will also learn specific Trauma Informed Leadership strategies designed to create a psychologically safe environment for team members and reduce the risk of burnout.
