A trauma-informed organization is one where all practices and services are viewed through the lens of trauma. In a trauma-informed organization, programs respond empathetically to survivor needs, ensure their physical and emotional safety, develop realistic goals, and avoid re-traumatization. This training provides guidance on how your organization can become trauma-informed and how to modify policies and procedures to respond to trauma victims.
This training is designed for those responsible for designing and implementing their organization’s programs and policies. It will be delivered online, over the course of 5 weeks, beginning on July 1, 2019. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a facilitated webinar.
This training is part of the NVAA Advanced Skills Institute and, like all OVC TTAC trainings, there is no cost to participate. Please note: Space is limited. Apply today to reserve your seat.
All webinars are conducted from 2:30–3:45 p.m. eastern time (1:30–2:45 p.m. central time, 12:30–1:45 p.m. mountain time, and 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m. pacific time). The sessions are recorded, so if you are unable to participate in a live webinar, you will be able to access the recording.
