Understanding Trauma in Healthcare – What leaders need to know about how to support their staff and themselves

About this session:

This 90-minute leadership bitesize session is for leaders in the NHS who would like to understand what trauma looks like and how it can impact your staff and yourself. The session will focus on:

  • An understanding of what trauma is, how it impacts people at an individual level and the systems or teams they work within.
  • Recognising when staff may be traumatised and helping staff to access the help and support they need
  • Understanding and using the 5-pillar framework as a tool to benefit the workforce and their wellbeing
  • Understanding trauma through the lens of inclusion and equality

You will be invited to share experiences and commit to an action to take back into your workplace to apply your learning in a tangible way.

Please be aware that this session will support you as a line manager to signpost staff to appropriate resources and services, this is not about training you to provide that support yourself.

The session will be virtually delivered on Microsoft Teams
