The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines trauma as an “emotional injury that affects performance and well-being.” A trauma-informed organization goes beyond understanding those impacts to intentionally create a workplace culture which mitigates the negative effects of trauma on its employees and on the individuals, families, and communities served. This training will provide a multifaceted framework for understanding the complexity of trauma and offer discussion on how organizational culture impacts the application of trauma-informed practice. 

As a result of the training, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify signs and symptoms of trauma, shock, and toxic stress for individuals, communities, and organizations 
  • Understand the complexity of trauma and of providing trauma-informed care 
  • Utilize trauma-informed principles within the workplace culture of their organization
