New Webinar Series: Developing Trauma-informed Organizations

Share this on:

Day after day, many of us work with children, families, and staff who have experienced trauma, yet we often do not know how to respond to their needs. As a result, more childcare centers, schools, and agencies are expanding their work to become “trauma-informed and resilient organizations,” which is defined as:

The program, organization, and system that:

  • Realizes the widespread impact of trauma & understands the paths for recovery;
  • Recognizes the signs & symptoms of trauma in children, families, & staff;
  • Responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, & practices; and,
  • Seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.*

During a series of trainings and dialogues, we will unpack these concepts of trauma informed care and child development to explore what this really means for initiatives, child-care centers, and agencies serving our communities. We will explore how the culture of an organization can care for and support staff while also creating safe, supportive environments for families and children through trauma-informed policies and practices.

Participants will walk away with tools for assessing and integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices; and a deeper understanding of how trauma-informed care leads to more sustainable, resilient organizations. We encourage you to bring a team from your programs, as there will be time for program planning and reflection.
