Building and Supporting a Resilient Team: Key Tools for the Trauma-Exposed Workplace

December 7, 2015

A workshop for managers and supervisors

About the Event
Compassion Fatigue and Secondary Trauma are now fairly well understood consequences of working in high stress, high trauma exposed settings. New research is suggesting that self care alone is not sufficient in ensuring that our staff remain healthy and engaged and able to deliver ethical, compassionate care. What can we, as managers and supervisors, do to best support them given the realities of our limited resources? Please join us for an in depth exploration of the most up to date evidence-informed best practices to ensure that you have the healthiest staff in the healthiest possible organization.

Who Should Attend:
Managers and supervisors who work in the helping field. This includes mental health, DCFS, ECE, early intervention, and other providers who serve children and families who have experienced traumatic of stressful life events.

Participants Will Learn:

  • The impact of high stress, high trauma exposed work on your staff
  • Managing change and uncertainty among your team
  • How to support your staff and foster resiliency
  • Caring for yourself and for others
  • Key elements of a healthy workplace

Featured Presenter:
Françoise Mathieu, M. Ed. CCC is the director of Tend Academy which offers consulting and training to helpers on topics related to self-care, wellness, burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.
