One day you are providing services and the next day you wake up as a supervisor – it happens all the time. Most of us had no training on good supervisory principles and practices and even fewer have been taught to supervise using trauma-informed approaches. This webinar will walk through what it takes to be a good supervisor and to infuse a trauma-informed and collaborative process into your supervision.
After this webinar, you’ll be able to:
- Recognize the values of trauma-informed supervision based on the principles of trauma-informed care
- Name two of the basic assumptions and key components of trauma-informed supervision
- Develop one organization strategy to support trauma-informed supervision
Presented in partnership with The National Council for Behavioral Health.
Challenges for Supervisors
Supervisors cannot always rely on their graduate school education to prepare them for a supervisory role.
The need for preparation
Principles of Trauma-Informed Care (TIC)
Supervisors strive to infuse the trauma-informed care principles into all areas of supervision.
Screening and Assessment
The trauma-informed care principles apply along the entire clinical pathway from screening and assessment to referral and treatment.
- Ask questions in a sensitive, respectful manner to create positive interactions at every step of the pathway.
- Honor shared decision making and understand that when we make recommendations or explore possibilities, it is okay for a person to decline.
- Effectively partner with the client to identify trauma-related needs, strengths and available resources.
