We all bring our own histories, current contexts and difficult experiences to work and to our interactions with colleagues and service users. These include personal experiences of adversity and trauma which are frequently unspoken and yet so much more common than we think. They shape the lens through which we experience our work and our interactions with colleagues and service users.
By recognising the prevalence and far reaching impact of trauma, trauma informed organisational practice creates safe environments for service users and staff. Trauma informed organisations understand the risks of re-traumatisation and promote empowerment, collaboration and connection. Trauma informed practice is central to maintaining healthy organisational functioning and to staff wellbeing and retention.
Keeping well NCL is pleased to be able to offer introductory Trauma Informed Organisational Practice workshops to our NCL colleagues on the following dates.
- Tuesday 10th January 9.30-11am
- Wednesday 22nd February 12.30-2pm
