CHWs and Trauma Informed Care: Building Community Collective & Resilience
January 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This MACHW interactive workshop series aims to support CHWs as they strive to serve their clients during these challenging times. The workshop formats will include expert panels, Q and A, and case studies on critical issues from across Massachusetts.
Working on the frontlines, Community Health Workers (CHWs) are public health professionals who simultaneously build on the strengths and resilience of themselves and the communities they serve. CHWs provide support services to clients across various behavioral health spectrums, including grief, loss, substance use and mental health services.
In this workshop we will discuss the impact that traumatic experiences have on individuals, families, and communities. We will build upon information provided in the first session held on November 4th around trauma and resiliency. Feedback from the participants in the previous session will be prioritized and incorporated into the workshop’s structure and we will provide opportunities for connection and building community by designating space to share ideas.
