Training & Workshops
Being trauma responsive means not only acknowledging that people have had trauma and other adverse experiences, but developing structures that create safety, empathy and build resilience. This lens impacts how an organization operates from their physical location, to policy and procedures, to service provision and staff support. Shifting organizational culture to one of trauma-responsiveness involves a combination of education and training, staff attunement and support, and ongoing follow-up through consultation. Labors of Love is prepared and equipped to support corporations, organizations, and governments on their journey.
