Strategies for Creating Trauma Responsive Institutions: Concrete Actions, Activities and Approaches

This workshop provides 12 concrete strategies that will help you make your organization more trauma responsive. We often focus on the trauma responsiveness of individual clinicians; this workshop, in contrast, focuses on how institutions themselves can develop a greater trauma responsive culture and the importance of this cultural change for those individuals they serve and the professionals working there. Through hands on activities, discussion, case studies and examples, the workshop participants will have a set of tools to take back to and adapt for their home institutions. Through this workshop, participants will see that there is no single strategy to enable institutions to become trauma responsive; instead, there are many approaches, actions and activities (the 3A’s) that, together, enable significant and invaluable institutional culture change
