Thrive: Self-Care & Culture
Building resilient staff, teams, and organizations is foundational to creating trauma informed services. Helping professionals are at risk of experiencing issues that mirror those of their traumatized clients. Exposure to trauma, combined with a stressful work environment, can have dangerous consequences for the physical and emotional health of those who provide services. Knowledge is the best defense against burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue. This training goes further than other self-care trainings by addressing the role of team culture in building healthy programs
and also by identifying the critical elements of health that enhance productivity and quality of work. Utilizing research in neurobiology, psychology, and business, this training provides skills for individuals and teams to be more effective and efficient at work.
