Trauma-Informed Leadership: A Deep Dive into Safety and Trustworthiness
February 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PSTFree
The concept of trauma-informed care has received extensive attention over the last 10 years. Trauma-informed practices have been designated across multiple types of service systems, including child welfare, mental health, juvenile justice, and substance abuse, among others. To date, the primary focus has been on supporting the organization and its employees to utilize a trauma-informed approach with the clientele served. However, considering recent national and global events, a broader trauma-informed leadership approach at an organizational level is warranted.
This workshop series is designed to build on the Trauma-informed Leadership webinar. Part 1 (February 9) will focus on team psychological safety and part 2 (March 9) will focus on building team trust. In each section, participants will engage in self-assessment and self-reflection activities to identify their areas of strength as well as potential challenges in this work. You will be encouraged to share and learn from one another so that you can leave the session with concrete strategies to build safety and trust in your teams.
