Shifting What We Know: Trauma Informed Practice in Community Based Programs

Join Dylan Oosterveld for a workshop highlighting how the Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary embarked on a multiyear journey to shift to trauma-informed practice in their residential programs. “This journey led us to develop a team who genuinely understand what it means to work from a trauma-informed perspective. In our community club programs, we are seeing the benefits of this work from a social and emotional learning, preventative and strengths based perspective and are embarking on the journey to develop our trauma informed workforce throughout our clubs.” In this workshop, they will be sharing lessons learned from a fundamental shift in perspective that has helped meet the needs of vulnerable kids in a better way.
