Creating a Trauma-Informed Workplace
June 29th + June 30th: The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits is offering “Creating a Trauma-Informed Workplace”:
“Acknowledging and effectively intervening in stress and trauma builds a resilient workforce better able to manage crisis in our lives, organization, and community. This is why it is important to develop a trauma-informed workplace. But what does it mean to be trauma-informed, and how can nonprofits build such an environment for their own teams?
In this workshop, participants will learn what it means to be trauma-informed, as well as some of the basic principles of a trauma-informed workplace. These principles are applicable to any size or type of nonprofit, and create a strengths-based framework grounded in the understanding of and response to the impact of trauma to approach relationships.
Additionally, participants will also learn some strategies for managing their own experiences of stress and trauma, and explore how supervisors can better support their supervisees during times of stress and trauma.
This workshop is geared toward supervisors looking to build their skills in recognizing and managing stress responses.
Please note that this training takes place over the course of two days, June 29 and 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. both days.”
