Saturday, June 24, 2017: 8:30 AM-12:30 PM
Independence HI (Grand Hyatt Washington)
Organizations have started moving beyond consumer engagement to consumer leadership, working to achieve true shared roles within organizations. In order to support this growth, we must empower consumers and teach the skills needed to assume responsibility for CABs and other consumer-focused spaces in trauma-informed ways that create safe and respectful environments. This three-part training will walk through the basics of trauma itself, outline the principles and practices behind trauma-informed care, and share strategies and tools to maximize trauma-informed skills and atmospheres created by and for consumers.
