The realization that the majority if not all of the clients’ we serve have experienced Trauma has led to a significant shift in our system. Organizations are being tasked with ensuring that their policies and procedures are trauma informed. Supervisors are now having to make sure that staff are utilizing trauma informed practice methods in their work and to model these principles in their supervisory practice. Just as trauma informed principles have changed the way we interact with consumers; these same principles need to change the way we supervise and manage staff.

 

Note:

  • All supervisors taking this course must have taken previous Trauma Informed training and be familiar with Trauma Informed principles of care.
  • You must be prompt and present for the course. Any time missed will result in certificates not being issued.
