How Can Human Service Leaders Create & Implement Trauma-Informed Leadership & Management Practices? 

The human service workforce generally reflects higher rates of childhood adversity and trauma than other sectors. This can be an asset to organizations in that workers with lived experience are especially motivated to help others heal and become more resilient. To fully realize this potential, organizations need to create workplace environments that are safe and inclusive for all staff. This workshop will focus on ways that human service leaders can create an organizational culture where trauma-informed leadership and management practices are implemented to foster healing and resilience for both staff and clients.
