Trauma Informed Care For Direct Services

September 28 , 10:00 am EDT September 29 , 3:30 pm EDT

70% of adults have been impacted by trauma. It’s important to note that “adults” includes the clients whom you serve, as well as the team members within your organization. In response to the growing awareness of the impact of trauma on individuals’ thoughts, emotional responses, relationships and decision making it’s become the expectation, not the exception, that organizations operate from a Trauma Informed Care perspective. In fact, HUD has accepted the framework provided by SAMHSA in defining trauma and the best practices of organizational response.

This training will provide key information to the leadership team on the impact of trauma and how it shapes clients’ ability to successfully utilize the services offered by the organization. In addition, this training will define the guiding principles of Trauma Informed Care which shape organizational decisions and interactions, and provide step by step instructions on how to implement Trauma Informed Care within the organization. You will also learn specific Trauma Informed Leadership strategies designed to create a psychologically safe environment for team members and reduce the risk of burnout.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
