Our Organizational Development & Management expert will transform your human services organization into a trauma-informed organization. A trauma-informed organization will provide a healthy and healing environment to effectively deliver your program services needed by your client.
“Providing trauma-informed relationships helps the individual overcome some of the adverse affects of past trauma: lack of safety; distrust and possible feelings of betrayal; coercion and absence of choice; uncertainty regarding what will happen next; and disqualification and humiliation in response to efforts at self-assertion and self advocacy.” (Hodas, G. MD, 2013).
Our program is designed and proven to promote a positive system change in your human services delivery. We present a model that is trauma-informed so that your services are healthy and healing, your staff is able to conceptualize the client in proper perspective, and your staff learns how to treat the client in a healthy and safe manner.
