Creating Trauma-Informed Organizational Change 

Creating Trauma-Informed Organizational Change is an online training session for behavioral health providers and other organizations that will take place on Tuesday, April 27th from 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm.

The prevalence of traumatic stress in the lives of individuals, families, and communities is high and expected to increase due to the COVID-19 pandemic and racial trauma. In order to respond appropriately to the needs of trauma survivors, organizations must become trauma informed. A trauma-informed organization is one where all policies, procedures, practices, programming, and services are viewed through the lens of trauma. This session provides guidance in how your organization can evaluate your current policies, procedures, practices, programming, and services to take specific steps to become a fully integrated trauma-informed organization.

This session will be facilitated by Paul Archibauld, DrPH, LCSW-C, MAC.Dr. Archibald is a public health social worker with over twenty years of clinical practice and training dedicated to the prevention and treatment of behavioral health outcomes among persons exposed to chronic stressors and trauma. His current research agenda is to utilize an intersectional approach to survey the role of stress and trauma in the contribution of stress-related health disparities.

This is an introductory session. Providers who are interested continuing this work to support trauma-informed organizational change, will have the opportunity to apply for a more in depth series of workshops through brief application of a Trauma Informed Learning Collaborative – Request for Letters of Interest (RFLOI) that closes April 30, 2021.
