Learning Community Description & Learning Objectives

When we compassionately and skillfully incorporate best practices into our work, people are more likely to trust and allow us to partner with them to make positive changes in their lives. Embodying best practices is essential in our work with people who have too often been marginalized and mistreated. This training provides an overview of selected person-centered, racially-equitable, housing-focused, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented, peer-integrated, self-compassionate approaches that inform our work.

  • Describe the four elements of the mindset and heart-set of best practices
  • Give an example each of how white dominant culture perpetuates racism at interpersonal, institutional, and structural levels
  • Describe three principles of trauma-informed practice
  • Identify three benefits of integrating peer providers in service delivery
  • Name three ways to foster personal resilience and renewal

This 5-week live learning community will be held over 5 Thursdays: March 18-April 15, 2021, at 10-11:15 AM Pacific Time.

Target Audience

Staff at all levels of health and human service agencies seeking to incorporate best practices into their programs.
