How to Educate Your Organization About Trauma-Informed Change: How & Why to Get Employees to “Buy In”

July 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This 2-hour workshop is the eighth of a Trauma-Informed/Resiliency Series developed for leaders and organizations interested in cultivating and sustaining a trauma-informed culture. This presentation is intended to build upon the information and conversation from earlier workshops. Presenters will stress the importance of ‘all staff’ training, unit meetings, and individual supervision as vehicles for educating and encouraging the transfer of learning.

The impact of change on our staff and those we serve can be significant. It is fitting that we spend time preparing and supporting our staff for the transitions ahead. Ample communication and ongoing education of staff are key strategies that often get overlooked. Competent, confident, and compassionate employees are what we are striving for, and that transition begins with providing adequate information to our team.

Participants will be reminded of the concepts of “change happens at the speed of trust,” the “Messy Middle,” and “Leadership Lag.” They will gain insight into the importance of educating staff as a support to furthering the organization’s mission. This workshop will also provide tips for leaders to confidently speak of the organization’s purpose and mission in the community and with partners.


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how education and communication impact all facets of the organization.
  • Recognize the importance of all staff being aligned.
  • Reminder of the importance of establishing rhythm, predictability, and safety.
  • Develop continued insights to normalize the “messy middle.”
  • Gain insight into how educating staff is supporting staff.
