ACEs Aware: Trauma-Informed Reopening Strategies
April 14 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amComplimentary for CCALAC Members
As shelter in place orders are being lifted, it is difficult to know how to approach re-opening our organizations, communities and even daily functioning. There is little doubt we all realize there will be a “new normal,” but what should that look like? We must honor that the trauma, fear, anxiety and crises we have personally and collectively faced makes it challenging to use our mental reserves to thoughtfully address re-opening strategies. However, there is also an abundance of hope, and resilience, when we look for it, focus on it, and let it drive our efforts. Using the principles of trauma-informed care, and some lessons we have learned in our community partners along our journey, we want to offer some tips for responding to re-opening in thoughtful and practical ways.
● Review of ACEs science and toxic stress
● Identify principles of trauma informed organizations and practices
● Review global trauma-informed strategies for organizations
● Discuss stress responses of COVID-19 on community members
● Consider specific strategies to increase resilience through the domains of wellness
