Prerecorded Webinar Series
This 4-part series provides valuable and practical information on
how to conduct a trauma informed investigation.
Session 1 – Trauma Informed Practices
This session introduces the concept of how a trauma informed approach to investigations is essential to understanding its impact on the workplace. Investigators will become familiar with how different types of trauma may present in people, and how trauma sensitivity is important to every working environment.
Session 2: Conducting Trauma Informed Interviews
This session introduces concepts and suggestions on how to interview witnesses who may have experienced trauma. Knowing the right questions to ask will contribute to a better interview, and provide a more accurate understanding for further investigation.
Session 3: Understanding Trauma Response Techniques
This session introduces the ways in which responsive strategies and techniques assist those who have experienced trauma. The secondary impacts to families, workplaces, and even to investigators are explored, with important information on the value of self care.
Session 4: Creating Trauma Informed Workplaces
This session introduces the reasons why a trauma informed workplace is essential to a healthy workplace. Identifying either the presence, or absence, of trauma sensitivity in the worksite contributes to a holistic investigation, and will assist investigators in making effective recommendations to employers for an overall supportive and safe work environment.
