Led by Dr. Kerrie Fineran, This 3-hour web-based training will provide supervisors with a general understanding of trauma informed care principles and practices in direct service and supervision.
Specific training about essential components of effective supervision and infusing these trauma-informed principles into supervision experiences with direct reports will be provided.
The training will be lecture based with small group breakout sessions for more in depth discussion of topics and practice with case study examples.
At the conclusion of this training, participants will be able to:
Identify basic elements of trauma-informed care practices.
