Training and Consultation Program
The Trauma Healing Project provides training to individual professionals, businesses, groups, and community organizations who want to remove barriers and improve outcomes for people in our community who have been impacted by trauma. We have provided training to over 3,000 local professionals and community members, and have presented our work regionally, nationally and internationally.
Participants in our trainings report being more knowledgeable about the impacts of trauma on individual and community health, more confident in their ability to respond in helpful ways to disclosures of abuse or violence, and more able to identify and refer to appropriate community resources. Professionals also report being more likely to incorporate trauma screening and assessment into their routine practice protocols.
We also work as consultants with business and organizational leaders who are working to implement a trauma-informed model of care in their operations. Trauma-informed services are intentionally designed to reduce toxic stress and to avoid re-traumatization for those receiving and providing services, with the understanding that healing is always relational. Implementing a trauma-informed model of care can improve client outcomes, prevent and mitigate worker experiences of burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma, and support organizations in their ability to fulfill their key missions.
