Trauma Informed Practice
Our most popular offering – this training is available in both full day and half day format. Trauma Informed Practice has become a must in every industry. We also recognize that trauma informed practice means something different for health care workers than it does for educators, so we provide industry specific training that is tailored to the organization we present it for.
This half day workshop explores how to create a supportive and inclusive environment for diverse populations. In this era of expanding globalism and social justice movements, we are interacting with more people who differ from us in any number of ways than ever before. This workshop will examine how to create organizational inclusion that covers race, gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, immigration, ability, culture and more as well as navigating difficult conversations about sensitive topics and understanding human rights and resources legislation.

Most insurance plans will offer coverage for counselling by a clinical social worker (M.S.W., R.S.W.) This information is often nested under paramedical/allied health coverage or psychologists. If you do not have insurance coverage, you can submit receipts from a clinical social worker as a medical expense on your tax return.
All initial sessions are booked for 90 mins to allow for a complete history and psycho-social assessment. Subsequent sessions clients have the choice of either a 60 or 90 minute session.
