Moving towards a trauma-informed and resilient organization involves intentional and equitable approaches to systemic and organizational change. This includes focusing on the well-being of all the adults within a system so that they can bring their whole, human selves to the important work they do to care for others.

In August 2020, CPCA and Regional Consortia partners at CCALAC will launch a three-part seminar series titled, Trauma-Informed and resilient Oriented Health Centers. This series will help leaders at all levels to understand the fundamentals of leading their organization towards becoming more trauma-informed and resilience-oriented. The content will blend brain science, principles for building a safe environment, and promising practices fro trauma-informed systems. The didactic webinars will be complimented by regular office hours and a Connected Communities resource page where participants can share reflections, ask questions, and network with colleagues about their successes and challenges. 

Registration is limited to 150 people. Registrants must commit to attending all sessions in the series. The target audience includes: Executive, site level, and department leadership across all disciplines of the health center; clinicians and clinical support staff, especially peer support staff; and administrators. Inter-professional teams are highly encouraged.

Upon registration you will receive an email with receipt of registration. Additional details will be distributed as information becomes available.
