Who this is for
Enrollment is open to anyone who is interested in increasing their learning in trauma-informed practice. Level 1 – INTRODUCTION TO TRAUMA INFORMED PRACTICE is a prerequisite for this course. Past participants have included: union representatives, human resource professionals, health care workers, counsellors, lawyers, mediators, tribunal members and staff, university administrators, human rights advocates, workplace investigators, those working front-line in high conflict situations, those exposed to vicarious trauma, teachers, policy makers, First Nation partners, and life-long learners.
Continuing Professional Development credits for this workshop are available with the B.C. Law Society. Please email us if you would like to obtain CPD credits with another regulatory or professional body.
In this session, we will directly explore definitions of trauma and share some examples of personal trauma, including child apprehension, intimate partner violence, and attendance at Indian Residential Schools, including direct and indirect/inter-generational impacts. This information may remind participants of their own experiences and elicit strong emotions. We will provide information for seeking support, and will include regulating and grounding practices within the session to support well-being. We encourage everyone to participate in the workshop at a level they feel comfortable with, including taking a break, seeking emotional support, and re-joining as needed.
