Trauma Informed Care: What Is It and What Can We Do About It?
Jun 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for this FREE interactive webinar to explore strategies for supporting people who have been touched by traumatic experiences!

A person’s behavior is shaped and learned through their experiences and interactions with others in their environments. Challenging behaviors that are difficult to manage may emerge when that person’s behavior has been shaped by traumatic experiences. For people with developmental disabilities traumatic experiences may be hidden and only show signs of existence when challenging behavior emerges.

This training will discuss trauma and how it may present in people diagnosed with developmental disabilities. Moreover, this training will discuss strategies for supporting people touched by traumatic experiences including current and relevant situations such as natural disasters and pandemics.

Self-Care…But who is helping the helper?
Sep 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Presented by Jenna Harbert, LCSW/Behavior Specialist

Have you ever stopped to think, “Why are we so good at taking care of others, but not ourselves?” Studies show that a high percentage of mental health workers may be experiencing high levels of burnout. Mental Health workers also experience compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. Studies also show that those same workers are only moderately engaging in self-care practices and only on a limited basis. Arguably, it is important to both be aware of this, as well as proactively take an approach to prioritize our own mental health.

Focusing on preventative measures can help us lead a happier, healthier lives. During this workshop we will review self-care studies and ideas. We will focus on identifying self-care methods unique to each individual person and how to best enact these methods of care to improve one’s life. We will review the balance between work, personal, and family stresses and develop practical plans. The plans will focus on recognizing the deficits in each area and how to build them back up. This workshop will help those actively engaged in the helping profession recognize the need for self- care including the types of self-care as well as how we can develop a self-care plan.
