Building Resiliency in Child Abuse Organizations
0.7 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is offered for this training.
Victim service providers who work with abused children often emphasize the importance of building resiliency in these young victims. However, they sometimes overlook the need to develop resiliency in themselves. To maintain a healthy perspective, providers must learn how to build their own individual resiliency. And it also is the ethical responsibility of the organization to establish an environment that supports and encourages resiliency in its staff. Organizations can use the same elements of individual resiliency to create strategies that help providers develop and practice this critical strength. The goal of this 1-day training is to identify the five core elements of resiliency and explore how they can be implemented using an organizational model. The training is intended for victim service providers who work in agencies interested in implementing resiliency strategies through policies, supervisory techniques, and training.
