Supervisors are entrusted with the professional development of our supervisees and students. They come to the profession with a wide range of lived experiences, including trauma.

Those lived experiences may impact their abilities as professional helpers. This workshop will present an overview of trauma-informed care as a concept on both an individual and systems level.

We will discuss behavioral and performance concerns that arise and how to best coach and support staff as they learn about themselves and the work.

Hiding in Plain Sight: How Sexual Violence Manifests in the Classroom, Workplace, and the Community (with CE hours) - Virtual

Sexual violence is a pervasive problem, which remains hidden. Sexual violence is still often viewed as an individual problem only being perpetrated by a handful of “bad people.” The reality is something different; sexual violence remains a pervasive problem mainly because we still hold on to stereotypes, attitudes and belief systems that allow a culture of sexual violence to thrive. Sexual violence is not a problem to be dealt with only by victims and perpetrators, but by all of us if we are ever going to take real steps to end it. This workshop will define sexual violence as a community issue and demonstrate the impact on all of us, paying particular attention to our classrooms, workplaces, and communities at large. This workshop is not meant to replace any agency- or state-mandated sexual harassment training. 4 approved Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Master Social Worker continuing education hours.
