“Trauma-Informed Practice” is a buzzword in many fields, including education, mental health, healthcare, advocacy, corrections, and more. But what does it really mean, and are there concepts that apply across these diverse fields? How do you know if your organization is ready to implement trauma-informed practices? This session begins with a lecture on an organizational development model of trauma-informed practice developed by the Missouri Department of Mental Health and the Missouri State Trauma Round table. Following the lecture, participants will break into discussion groups and complete an organizational assessment based on this developmental model of trauma-informed practice. The workshop concludes with large group discussion of the assessment process and identification of additional resources to help organizations move toward more trauma-informed and resilience-enhancing practices.
The discussion will focus on framing trauma-informed practice, and introduce an organizational development model of progression toward more trauma-informed practices. Participants will use a form that explains characteristics of each of four developmental levels in this model, evaluating where their organizations fit on this grid. Additional time to report back on what their insights were and to wrap up will round out this two hour webinar.
