Organizations are increasingly recognizing their responsibility for creating supportive practices and policies to sustain their staff and respond effectively to survivors. Whether advocates or law enforcement, attorneys or clinicians, the impact of direct and indirect exposure to trauma can be challenging and can lead to burnout if the necessary attention isn’t given. In addition to attending to the negative impact of the work, bringing awareness to the positive aspects are essential to creating a robust workforce, retaining long term employees, and welcoming younger and more diverse staff.
Providing examples of building workplace practices designed to sustain staff engagement and restoration throughout the workday, the presenters will offer ways to attend to staff needs while strengthening organizational practices. This interactive session will explore ways that staff, supervisors, and managers can enhance individual, team, and organizational well-being.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
- Explore and learn strategies for addressing the negative impacts of the work with trauma survivors.
- Recognize and enrich the positive aspects of the work including meaning, compassion satisfaction and peer support.
- Create organizational strategies to enhance staff support.
