A trauma informed environment feels safe and welcoming to everyone. The way that staff members treat each other affects that environment and the people being served. Supervision should model the characteristics of a healthy empowering relationship so that staff members can develop similar relationships with the people being served. In this training we will review the principles of trauma-informed supervision, discuss how to apply these principles, and practice trauma informed supervision techniques.
At the end of this training participants will be able to:
Identify types of traumatic experiences within staff
Describe three Trauma Informed Supervision Principles
Describe ways to make the supervision experience relational and collaborative
Identify ways to enhance self-reflection and empowerment in supervision
