Trauma-Informed Teams

To be effective and efficient, organizations must provide their services in ways that do not inadvertently re-traumatize the teams of workers providing support to their clients. Becoming trauma-informed means adapting practices, policies, physical spaces and more to make services more accessible for everyone, including the workers. This is very important when working on a team, some of whom likely have lived experiences of trauma. This class helps learners conceptualize the nature of this problem and offers practices that reduce the risk of re-traumatization.



  • Review the impacts of trauma exposure in behavioral health work
  • Consider the mechanisms of re-traumatization in the workplace
  • Assess areas of trauma-informed practice using various assessment tools
  • Examine trauma-informed team competencies
