Trauma Informed Edmonton (TIE) is partnering with regional experts to present a new workshop for frontline workers interested in gaining awareness around trauma and intergenerational trauma.
This workshop acknowledges the prevalence and significant impact of trauma in an individual's life, and aims to inform service providers how to apply a trauma-informed lens to their current practice. Learning to deliver services in this way will allow service providers to appreciate the context in which their clients live without contributing to these traumatic experiences.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
This one-day workshop is facilitated by Line Perron & Chelsea Hobbs.

- Identify the signs and symptoms of trauma
- Define and understand trauma-informed practice
- Identify the main principles of trauma-informed practice
- Understand how to implement trauma-informed principles into their own practice
- Recognize the impact working with trauma can have on a practitioner and understand the importance of self-care and reflective practice
Cost of the workshop: $50 (cost includes refreshments and lunch)
