Event description

Description

Trauma and violence can deeply impact human beings. Organizations and individuals who provide services can improve the quality, experience, and equity of their work by incorporating trauma and violence informed approaches to their care. During the morning session, Susan Macphail will introduce the concept of trauma and violence informed care and the ways that it can inform and transform front line work. After establishing a common understanding, the afternoon will explore the ways that trauma and violence informed approaches can be incorporated into organizations' leadership, structures, and models.

Participants can attend for the morning or stay for the full day.
The morning session is ideal for front line staff and volunteers.
The full day session is ideal for managers and leaders within organizations.

Susan Macphail has worked in social service sectors for 40 years particularly focusing on mental health, trauma and violence, homelessness, substance use, marginalization, gender, Indigenous and refugee experiences. She has contributed to and helped to initiate several innovative programs and services to meet the unique needs of individuals who experience barriers accessing mainstream services. These include the first shelters for women and services for Indigenous families in London. As the Director of Community and Women’s Programs at Canadian Mental Health Association Middlesex she collaborated to develop and implement trauma and violence informed approaches within the agency and across multiple sectors in Ontario and beyond.

Registration fees can be paid at the door by cash or cheque (made out to The Women’s Centre Grey Bruce Inc.)

A morning snack is included with registration for part one.
Lunch is included with registration for the full day.
