Trauma-informed Supervision Webinar Series

Focus of training: A critical condition for developing a trauma-informed system (i.e., agencies and other care providing setting) is for all staff members, including professionals, support staff and administrators, to have a comprehensive understanding of the effects and complexity of trauma, its potential behavioral manifestations and principles for addressing the needs of traumatized clients (Jennings, 2004). Training is essential in the process of transforming an agency to become trauma-informed. This three-part webinar series will cover a wide variety of topics and provide you with strategies for interacting with traumatized clients. Part 1: What is Trauma?, Part 2: The Long Reach of Intergenerational Trauma, Part 3: Interacting with Traumatized Clients.
