Friday, May 18, 2018: 8:30 AM-12:30 PM
Greenway AJ (Hyatt Regency Minneapolis)
Organizations have moved beyond consumer engagement and are now focused on consumer leadership, working to achieve true shared roles within organizations. In order to support this partnership, we must cultivate and support consumers in developing the skills needed to facilitate in trauma-informed ways that create safe and respectful environments. We will walk through the basics of trauma, outline principles and practices behind trauma-informed approaches, and share strategies to maximize leadership skills and engaging atmospheres created by and for consumers. This training is designed for consumers or for organization staff to use as a model in developing their own training locally.
