Trauma Informed Programs: A Forum for Agency Planning and Change

This workshop is designed for program administrators, supervisors and individuals who have a desire to become a trauma informed care setting, and who can affect systems change within their agency. We will set a foundation for systems change by reviewing how trauma impacts those we serve. Participants will review and utilize the elements of a trauma informed system of care as we perform an agency self-assessment of staff and program readiness to incorporate trauma into the treatment milieu. A SWOT analysis will begin your preparation for change by developing your strengths and needs into a "TO-DO" list: making growth toward becoming trauma informed painless, clear and meaningful. Through both small and large group discussion, we shall share strategies and boost your potential to create growth within your agency. Because sustainability is always a factor with change, we will develop plans to identify the trauma champions within your program structure who will provide that reinforcement and accountability. An important part of the process, we shall also review the role of care for the caregivers as we refine a supervision model that can be incorporated into your agency. Roll up your sleeves and be trauma informed! This workshop does not qualify for NBCC (National Board for Certified Counselors) clock hours.
