Volunteer Victoria: Trauma Informed Practice For Leaders
June 4 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
About this event
On average, 7 out of 10 people have experienced at least one significant trauma in their lifetime. Given these statistics, there is no doubt that we will work with employees who have been emotionally, psychologically, socially, and physically impacted by past trauma. It is essential that organizations foster trauma-informed practice in their workplaces yet many of us feel unprepared to support employees struggling with mental health matters often arising out of past trauma.
This workshop provides information on the impact that past trauma can have on workplace culture and offers tools that will help organizations build a workplace that promotes employee wellness. Supervisors will learn strategies that increase their ability to effectively address common workplace issues such as dysfunctional conflict, poor job performance, absenteeism, and staff turnover through a trauma-informed lens.
