June 30th Training | Managing Organizational Trauma Post COVID presented by Heide Lambert

Join us on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021 for an exciting training opportunity! We hope to see you for this in person event.

Training Description:  Managing Organizational Trauma Post COVID 
Managing Organizational Trauma Post COVID workshop focuses on how COVID restrictions affected our workplace. We will review the different definitions of trauma, understanding how the mind responds to trauma and what Trauma Informed Care (TIC) is and is not. Then we will take an in-depth look into our workplace wellness and start the discussion of how we can better implement TIC. We will explore what stressors we noticed having over the last year and what new ones have come up now that we are returning to our offices. We'll explore opportunities to reduce and reset our minds, and continue the conversation of what we think would be useful for us in this near future.

What you will gain from attending this training:

  • How to better implement TIC post COVID
  • What worked before and what will work going forward
  • A better understanding of workplace stressors
  • A toolbox full of strategies to utilize all you have learned

Who should attend: Supervisors, managers, directors, and anyone seeking solutions on how to Manage Organizational Trauma Post COVID.
