WEB 1181 Trauma Informed Wellbeing: a case study (FREE Mental Health Awareness Week Webinar)

Event | Training

This webinar is FREE and open to all members. Please email amira.rady@ilpa.org.uk to book your place. 

The interwoven, multi-layered and intersectional nature of trauma, and the experiences of staff, volunteers and supporters, mean that human rights organisations and frontline services have very distinct requirements and considerations relating to the wellbeing of staff and wider organisational health. This webinar will explore how applying a trauma informed lens to staff wellbeing can enable both individuals, and the organisation as a whole, to recognise and respond to this inherent risk of trauma exposure. 

The webinar will conclude by presenting an organisations experience of developing and implementing a Trauma Informed Wellbeing Framework to support an organisational wide approach to reducing and mitigating these risks.

This session is not a vicarious trauma training session, although it will discuss the inherent risks of providing services to and for trauma survivors and the resulting considerations for staff wellbeing.
