Free Webinar: Becoming a Trauma-Responsive Organization
Thursday, September 14th 1:00 PM CST (1 hour)
With the increased awareness of the impact of trauma on people's lives, helping professionals are asking themselves, "What does this mean in my setting?" And although the language "trauma-informed" is common, program administrators and clinical directors are finding that implementing effective and integrated services in order to become "trauma-responsive" can be quite challenging. Join Stephanie Covington, PhD and she guides you through the three necessary steps to becoming a more trauma-responsive organization: assessment, planning, and implementation. Objectives:
Defining trauma-informed, trauma-responsive and gender-responsive
Conducting a self-assessment of the core elements of gender and trauma-responsive services
Creating a guide team and implementation plan for next steps
Developing a plan for training staff on evidence-based and promising practices
Taking these steps will help you better organize the process of moving from trauma-informed to trauma-responsive in order to make effective and integrated services a reality.
