As employees demand better workplace cultures, it’s a crucial time to understand how the universal human experience of trauma can have tangible implications on employee behavior, motivation, and engagement.

The corporate sphere should take notes from other spaces like behavioral health, social services, and education spaces that are already integrating trauma-informed approaches into their work. 

What to expect:

  • Understand the definition of trauma, its prevalence, and its effects
  • Recognize the potential warning signs of trauma in the workplace 
  • Learn the four steps to building a trauma-informed workplace
