Are you looking for ways to manage feelings of being overwhelmed or to help your staff manage the barrage of ongoing trauma so they can do their work?

The National Council expert trauma-informed faculty will explore compassion fatigue and how to create a culture of wellness and trauma-informed care. Examining the tough questions: What does a culture of wellness and trauma-informed care look like? What hard conversations are necessary when focusing on workforce development?
