Things happen: violence and other traumatic events can occur that shake an entire community.

This training will cover how organizations can prepare a response plan to trauma within their community and equip staff with the skills to handle difficult situations.

Topics to be covered include: 

  • Protocols on how staff should respond to and report an emerging issue
  • Preparing staff members to help community members who have faced trauma 
  • Outside resources available to help communities heal 
  • Creating and implementing an organization-wide response after a traumatic event occurs
