Professional Development & Training
As a professional working with people who have experienced trauma, your growth and well-being is just as important as your clients'. We provide reflective, trauma-informed supervision, consultation, and training to promote your efficacy and resiliency within the helping profession. All services are tailored to your professional and/or program needs.
Trauma Consultation Group
We know all too well of the attrition in social services. Staff consultation has been shown to improve program outcomes and retention. We hear most often from service professionals experiencing burnout that they feel alone at work. Many leave the work altogether. Many more feel incompetent, despite their hours of graduate level education, internships, and work experience.
Invest in your staff today. During our consultation and support group your staff will:
Build a small, supportive community of solidarity
Receive trauma-informed reflective consultation
Receive and lend consultation with peers
Address vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout
Earn continuing education credits (CEUs) in Trauma-informed Care
Tailored Training & Workshops
We develop tailored program manuals, curricula, experiential training, and consultation that suits your population of providers and clients. Provide your staff with quality training in trauma-informed care and enhance engagement of youth and families in your program today.
We have trained for Loyola University, University of Chicago, Moran Center of Evanston, Evanston YWCA, Breaking the Silence, and other community partners.
Clinical Supervision & Consultation
In supervision, we facilitate reflective discussion of the use of self in the therapy room and the direct application of clinical skills with clients. Together, we will create a plan that optimizes your clinical strengths and identifies areas for professional growth. We engage in pro-active clinical planning and decision making with the special consideration of ethical obligations and trauma-informed care. We encourage particular attention to dynamics of power, specifically regarding the role of race, culture, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and able-bodiedness within the therapeutic relationship and work context.
