Homelessness 101: Trauma Informed Care on ZOOM
March 12 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Homelessness 101 is a series of trainings covering basic content relevant and necessary for all people working in housing and homeless services. Quarter 1 of 2021 will provide six sessions in the months of January, February and March. This training is 5 of 6.
Trauma Informed Care has become a bit of a cliché and many funders are requiring a “Trauma Informed Approach” but what is it really? This workshop takes a look at Trauma Informed Care from the perspective of someone who has experienced a traumatic event and then dives deeper into the psychology of trauma and recovery. We will be talking about what to do (and not) as well as addressing some of the beliefs around Trauma.
Presented by: Geoff Meyer has worked in the Human Services Field for the past 17 years. Along with providing trainings across the Midwest He is the Director of Housing and Services for House of Charity. Combining his BA in Film and Theatre with his MA in Counseling Psychology Geoff has developed a passion for engaging staff and clients to be able to fully experience trainings and therapy. Geoff puts a focus on person-centered, trauma informed, motivational interviewing and harm reduction with a dash of all the other treatment clichés that happen to be handy. Geoff encourages everyone to step back and not take themselves or each other too seriously. “We’re all just trying to meet our needs in the healthiest way we know and each of us has a responsibility to teach and learn from each other.”
