Presented by: St. Alphonsus Center's Traci Harrod and Marla Lipscomb
This half-day conference is designed specifically for executives, managers (clinical and non-clinical) and administrators across disciplines who were unable to attend the Healing Encounters Foundational Conference in September 2017.
Our Purpose: Share tools and resources to help guide and support direct service staff as well as strengthen organizational practices, protocols and services for individuals and families from diverse cultures and refugee backgrounds.
Our Objectives: Learn Equitable Triad principles and practices to strengthen the capacity of providers in creating healing encounters with clients through culturally responsive, linguistically appropriate & trauma-informed interactions. Learn ways to implement and integrate the Triad principles at all levels of the organization.
**We welcome participants in this workshop to attend one of the two (half-day) application workshops for health, mental health and other service provider colleagues on Wednesday, February 14th.
