POSTPONED Trauma Informed Care: Half Day Workshop- September 20th (October dates announced soon!)



This is the first of 4 workshops. We explore the foundational concepts of Trauma-Informed Care as a building block for the other 3 workshops we train on: Crisis Intervention 101, Healthy Boundaries, Burn-out, and Conflict Resolution. We recommend participating in this workshop first as these concepts will be helpful to the other workshops (not required). This session will be offered once every 3 months.

Boost Consulting is inspired by Dr. Sandra L. Bloom’s research in developing trauma-informed spaces and organizations, and Dr. Dan Siegel’s work on interpersonal neurobiology, trauma, and mindfulness. Both these models guide our Trauma-Informed Care 101 training. Trauma-informed care is a framework that can help support employees by building their knowledge about how to self-regulate, honor a client’s/service recipient’s experience, foster safe spaces for open/honest communication, and instill within them supportive and accessible knowledge to combat their own burnout and compassion fatigue. Having accessible knowledge about trauma and organizational resiliency supports employees in cultivating self-awareness, building their understanding of trauma and trauma responses, and integrating new practices that are healthy and sustainable. Our trauma-informed care workshop and experience will share definitions for a common language, offer an overall understanding about how the traumatized brain works, explore what trauma-Informed care is, explain why employees/employers should care, and learn how to apply these new practices through case-study presentations and activities.
