NO-COST SPRING SEMINAR: NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION 

 

Moving towards a trauma-informed and resilient organization involves intentional and equitable approaches to systemic and organizational change. This includes focusing on the well-being of all people within a system so that they can bring their whole, human selves to the important work they do to care for others. 

 

The Pacific Southwest MHTTC is offering a Spring TIRO Health Care Leadership Seminar. This three-part learning series will help leaders at all levels understand the fundamentals of leading their organization towards becoming more trauma-informed and resilience-oriented.  

 

WHO SHOULD REGISTER? 

 

Executive, site level, and department leadership across all disciplines of the health center (including school based health centers); clinicians and clinical support staff, especially peer support staff; and administrators and health providers. Inter-professional teams are highly encouraged. 

 

Note: Registrants must commit to attending all main sessions (in black font below); Communities of Practice (in green) and Practice Labs (in blue) are optional but highly recommended. 

 

At this time, the seminar is only open to those living in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and U.S. Pacific Islands of American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau. 

 

WHAT WILL WE BE LEARNING?
