2-Day Trauma Informed Care Session:
Introduction to Trauma Informed Care (day 1) and Operationalizing Trauma Informed Care (day 2)
Join Dr. Jocelyn Enabulele as she provides an orientation and overview to Trauma Informed Care. On Day 1, Dr. Enabulele highlights how and why trauma manifests as it does and elevates the importance of and strategies to ensure we don’t re-traumatize the people with whom we work. On Day 2, you will take a deeper dive into Trauma Informed Care, utilizing practical and real-world scenarios to hone your interactions with people experiencing the trauma of homelessness. Dr. Enabulele will also explore the intersection of Trauma Informed Care with issues of behavioral health. Attendees will be asked to bring examples of program policies, forms and other tools to workshop applying trauma informed care with their daily practices.
As many of us know, homelessness disproportionately impacts communities and people of color and American Indians and Alaska Natives who are then further traumatized as targets of other systemic and daily discrimination. As a trainer and facilitator of Racial Equity, Dr. Enabulele will be weaving the critical dynamics of historical, cultural and racial trauma throughout the two days.
