Posted on May 21, 2019
Podcasters: Matt Bennett, Curt Mower, & Dr. Jerry Yager
In this episode, Matt, Curt, and Jerry start to explore an article that impacted all our thinking in a major way. Dr. Sandra Bloom’s Organizational Stress as a Barrier to Trauma-Informed Service Delivery is a must read for anyone working in the helping professions. We start our exploration by looking at the concepts of trauma-organized systems and parallel processes.
- How does your organization or program think or discuss the relationship between staff’s trauma histories and working with people with trauma?
- Can you identify anywhere that parallel processes are occurring in your organization or program?
- Do you see any evidence of trauma organization in your organization or systems in which you work?
