The Ethical Imperative of Creating Trauma Informed Supervisory Relationships

DATES & TIME:
Thursday, November 9, 2017

TIME:
9:30 AM–12:30PM
LOCATION:
Lakeside Congregation
1221 County Line Road
Highland Park, IL 



BRIEF DESCRIPTION:

The principles of trauma-informed care propose that human service organizations must be trauma-informed not just for service recipients, but for agency staff as well.  An ethically attuned practitioner needs to be present with their minds, their hearts and their spirits.  Yet often times working with interpersonal violence and trauma can cause practitioners to experience symptoms themselves. It is during these times that staff can lose a sense of attunement to their own needs and those of their clients.  The presenter will address these scenarios and more, as well as strategies for creating a safe space in supervision so reflection and learning can occur.  This session is appropriate for all staff - whether supervisors or supervisees. 
Learning Objectives:
• Define the principles and key components of trauma informed supervision.
• Understand the impact of secondary/vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue on practitioners.
• Recognize the ethical considerations specifically relevant to creating trauma informed supervisory relationships
• Identify strategies for facilitating open and collaborative supervisory relationships that encourage sharing the emotional experience of doing trauma work in a safe and supportive manner.

Presenters:
Mary Jo Barrett, MSW, Founder and Director, Center for Contextual Change

CEU’S:
3.0 CEUs:
This session satisfies State of Illinois licensing requirements for continuing education in Ethics.
- No additional CEU fee for Social Work/Counseling.
- $5 additional fee for Illinois Certified Domestic Violence Professionals (ICDVP) through our partnership with Between Friends.
