Session 2G: The Role of Trauma-Informed Leadership for Promoting Multidisciplinary Team Wellness and Success

Track: The Business of Child Advocacy

Leadership within a multidisciplinary setting is rewarding, yet challenging at times. The NAS require a trauma-informed approach in the delivery of victims services, but less emphasis has been placed on incorporating trauma-informed care into the leadership of multi-d teams. In this session, attendees will learn what it means to be a trauma-informed leader and learn to lead and support their teams in a way that reduces secondary trauma and promotes quality, effective outcomes in each role.
