Introduction to Trauma & Resiliency Informed Practice for MHSU Service Providers

This one-day workshop will focus on building your capacity to reduce re-traumatizing experiences for people you serve in reception, intake, triage, outreach, support, counselling, education and leadership roles. There is ample evidence to suggest that Trauma & Resiliency Informed Practices (TRIP) have significant influence toward client and patient outcomes.

At the end of this day-long workshop, it is intended that participants will be able to do:

  1. Define the interplay of neurological, biological, psychological and social effects of trauma for people with mental health and substance use needs; 
  2. Describe how psychological and social trauma can be activated and/or intensified by triggers associated with MHSU service delivery;
  3. Apply skills to reduce re-traumatization and increase help seeking behaviours for people who have mental health and/or substance use service needs including people at risk for overdose;
  4. Increase confidence in your role and related service functions in responding to psychological and social trauma disclosures in a safe and supportive way;and,
  5. Appraise your own response to trauma exposure that increase your distress and if indicated, employ post traumatic growth efforts that support your resiliency.
