In this workshop, participants will learn about the impact of trauma on workforce development professionals, both personally and professionally. Participants will explore ways to manage reactions to trauma exposure and engage in a self-assessment of their self-care practices. Specific strategies for managing the effects of trauma exposure will be shared and practiced, and participants will develop an individual self-care/wellness plan they can implement after the workshop.
This training will be conducted by the Professional Excellence Program Child Welfare Training Collaborative at Georgia State University. CWTC provides training and professional development opportunities for various human services professionals and organizations. Topics addressed in CWTC’s trauma training series include the impact of trauma on behavior, resilience, trauma-informed care strategies, trauma-informed systems, secondary traumatic stress, and self-care for professionals.
We look forward to you joining us for our next MAX Academy on Tuesday, March 29th, 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM!
