A Trauma-Informed Approach to Creating Workforce Resilience


Tim Grove
Senior Consultant and Trauma-Informed Care Expert, SaintA


Courage Track: Physical

As we venture into an expanded scope of wellbeing, this presentation will provide insight and understanding around trauma-informed practice and introduce trauma-informed principles that support a healthy and resilient workforce. This session will provide examples of wellbeing practices that recognize the prevalence and impact of adversity on employees and the community. Tim will offer a perspective on how a trauma-informed approach by wellbeing professionals fits well in our current economic times and why creating a culture of resilience allows all people to thrive.

Learning Objectives: 
  • Participants will have a keen awareness of the prevalence & impact of adversity and trauma on their workforce; especially in a time of covid-19 and a push towards racial equity
  • Participants will leave with universal strategies that promote workforce resilience
