Creating Opportunities for Learning and Connecting Among Professionals
The Trauma Center will host monthly Healing Network Nights open to all local helping professionals, to explore self-care, the ups and downs of being a trauma-informed practitioner and foster social connections and quality relationships.
Support for professionals working with individuals and communities who have experienced trauma should not stop after the professional earns their degree. Secondary traumatic stress and burnout is high among this professional working with populations experiencing trauma, therefore resources need to be available to support their continued work in order to promote a more resilient, interdisciplinary network of practitioners.
This program will enhance interprofessional collaboration and connectedness among healthcare professionals providing trauma-informed care while simultaneously reducing the burnout rate. In this way, the Trauma Center aims to serve as a resource to the broader Cleveland community.
