Episode 84: Trauma-Organized Systems and Parallel Processes

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.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How does your organization or program think or discuss the relationship between staff’s trauma histories and working with people with trauma?
  2. Can you identify anywhere that parallel processes are occurring in your organization or program?
  3. Do you see any evidence of trauma organization in your organization or systems in which you work?
