Trauma-Informed Leadership: The Balance of Compassion & Accountability

September 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT


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 presentation is designed for leaders across services and systems who want to empower and engage the current workforce. Drawing from the literature on effective leadership, implementation science, and trauma-informed care principles, this presentation will provide concrete strategies for leaders to assist them in integrating trauma-informed principles into their practice. It will also provide strategies to effectively balance a compassionate leadership approach with holding themselves and others accountable to this work.
