Trauma Informed Care: Challenges for Both Professionals and Survivors
Kirsten Stopher & Kathryn Farmer | September 23 | 9:00 - 10:00 AM | Auditorium
The concepts of trauma and trauma-informed care have continued to change and grow over the years. What does this really look like in an agency providing intensive survivor services? In this workshop you will have the opportunity to join us as we walk through three survivor stories highlighting the honest realities of this challenging but rewarding work. Through these stories we will share intimately about our experiences in working to provide holistic trauma-informed care, vicarious trauma, and the traumas of “collaborative” work. Just as the concepts of trauma and trauma-informed care have evolved, the ways in which we celebrate and grow the work we do with survivors also evolves. Please join us for an open discussion on these topics so that we may all learn from each other!
