Trauma impacts our wellbeing, whether the other people are our friends, clients, or our co-workers, or our family members. Learning how vicarious trauma affects us is the first step to improving our wellbeing and ability to sustain positive relationships. The workshop begins with learning about and identifying our own signs of trauma exposure response and our emotional triggers. Participants practice strategies for de-escalating their own and others’ emotional responses in the moment. Further, they learn a framework for reading and shifting their own and others’ energy to move into a positive relational zone. This workshop offers tools for increasing staff awareness, skills, and tools for understanding how to best respond when trauma or trauma history is in play. The workshop concludes by exploring the ways in which supervisory relationships can support trauma-responsive practice and how workers and supervisors can co-create safe interpersonal space for reflection and skill-building.
Cost: $250 per participant.
