Conducting Trauma-Informed Data Collection: Workshops
Trauma-informed approaches have been developed in the field of behavioral health care to promote healing and avoid compounding harm caused by trauma among both clients and staff. Experience and comfort with these approaches is valuable not only for clinical staff providing care, but for non-clinical staff who may be gathering information from clients for any number of reasons, including but not limited to quality improvement, research, screening, or contact tracing.
This Off the Shelf option will help your non-clinical staff gain familiarity and comfort with applying the principles of trauma-informed data collection in their interactions with clients. ICH will lead a workshop that will include presentation, interactive learning, discussion and role-playing. Slides, handouts, and recordings will be made available. The training is available via teleconference; it may also be available in-person, depending on current guidance on pandemic safety.
The workshop can be customized to meet your organization’s precise data collection needs. This can include pre-formulated recommendations for sensitive data elements or questions and role-playing around specific scenarios. As part of the workshop, ICH can also provide consultation and recommendations on specific data collection protocols such as interview guides, forms, and surveys. The number of workshops and the price will be adjusted according to the degree of customization required.
