This training is designed for agency leaders who manage or supervise staff, peers or volunteers who are impacted by loss and traumatic events, either in the course of their work, or in their personal lives. This session will provide an orientation to the broad range of assessment and intervention skills that provide support and stabilization for our teams and our agencies in loss situations. We will also explore specific best practices, including a structure for low-impact debriefing after significant loss events and practical considerations about our own well-being as managers.
