The Great Lakes MHTTC is offering this training for individuals working in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, WI. This training is being provided in response to a need identified by Region 5 stakeholders.

 

 

DESCRIPTION:

This 2-hour workshop is the twelfth of a Trauma-Informed/Resiliency Series developed for leaders and organizations interested in cultivating and sustaining a trauma-informed culture. This presentation will revisit a concept introduced earlier in the workshop series, the “Messy Middle.” _When we move from the old way of doing practice to a new way of doing practice, we often encounter barriers. The messy middle can be extremely dysregulating. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, for critical thinking and creative problem solving to take place. It becomes uncomfortable and awkward to push through change, and the dysregulation will often have leaders and organizations retreat to the old way of practice because it feels safer and comfortable. This workshop will help attendees identify and apply techniques, strategies, and theories that have been introduced throughout the series to help regulate their organization.

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Explain the importance of safety and trust within an organization.

2. Understand how to utilize creative solutions for dysregulation.

3. Gain insight into common challenges that they may encounter with their team during the messy “middle phase.”

4. Learn new objectives and strategies to help regulate the “Organizational Brain”

 

 

CERTIFICATES:

Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance. Certificates are disseminated via email to all qualifying individuals approximately two weeks after the conclusion of the event or training.

Chuck Price, M.S.

 

Although many consultants strive to create trauma-informed environments and guide leaders through culture change, very few have successfully led their organizations through this process. Bonafide experience is what sets Chuck Price and Blue Collar Consulting apart from the others. This experience, along with Chuck’s easy manner and ability to form authentic relationships, make Chuck a natural fit to help support you as you lead your agency’s transformation process. Chuck has filled leadership roles in several counties and private agencies throughout his 27-years working in child welfare and health and human services. Chuck’s career has been dedicated to making drastic improvements in the lives of children and families. He has been brave and selfless in his pursuit of excellence, often pioneering pathways not yet traveled by his peers. He has served in leadership roles within public and private agencies, in both urban and rural settings. All of this has provided him with a diverse perspective and the ability to quickly understand and relate to challenges faced by leaders.

 

As a DHHS Director, Chuck led his department on a successful and transformational journey from traditional compliance-based practice to becoming a legitimate trauma-informed agency. As a result of his work recruitment, retention, agency health, and case outcomes dramatically improved. Under his leadership, overall numbers of children living in congregate care were significantly reduced, and at one point even dropped to zero! Chuck's results and process gained recognition across the state, the country, and internationally.

 

Chuck started Blue Collar Consulting to broaden the impact of lessons learned so you don’t have to start at the beginning. His passion is to help support brave leaders in their professional growth and development, and to use his real-world experience to assist organizations in their trauma-informed cultural transformations. He also has a sweet spot for his two dogs, Brewer and Uecker, which might give away his other passion…Milwaukee Brewers baseball! Chuck lives in Central Wisconsin with his wife of 27 years. As a new member of the empty-nester club, he is free to travel, connect, and lead your transformational work, no matter where you are on your journey, or the map.
