Homelessness 101: Trauma Informed Care on ZOOM
November 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Homelessness 101 is comprised of a series of 6 trainings covering basic content & best practices relevant and necessary for all people working in housing and homeless services. Quarter 4 of 2022 will address all 6 topics in November & December. You do not have to attend them all or in any particular order.
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 (He/Him) is the Director of Compliance & Quality Improvement for St. Stephen’s. He has lived experience in homelessness both as a youth and a young adult. Geoff has worked in the world of Human Services since 1999 and specifically in the world of mental health, chemical health and homelessness since 2002, working with both youth/ adolescents and adults and in both locked and harm reduction/housing first models.
