Presented by Dr. Scott Giacomucci, DSW, LCSW, BCD, CGP, FAAETS, TEP

This workshop centers the six trauma-informed principles outlined by SAMHSA as guiding values in leadership (drawing from content in Dr. Scott’s forthcoming book on the topic). These principles will be presented as both guiding values and ethical imperatives. Participants will be challenged to explore their own relationships to trauma-informed principles and areas for growth in their practice and their workplace. Participants will explore their own conceptualization of “leadership”. Trauma-informed care considerations will be applied specifically to the practice of leadership, supervision, and education. Multiple sociometric and psychodramatic interventions will be taught as trauma-informed experiential methods. The importance of attending to safety, trust, peer support, collaboration, empowerment, and identity will be explored in further detail as they relate to trauma-informed leadership. Research on trauma-informed principles in leadership will be outlined.

1). Identify the six trauma-informed principles outlined by SAMHSA.

2). Describe the four R’s of trauma-informed care.

3). Identify one sociometric tool to explore group or organizational dynamics

4). Describe two considerations for trauma-informed sociometry in action

5). Explain the role of group cohesion in effective organizations and groups

6) Explain the importance of ethics in trauma-informed leadership

7) Describe two strategies for resisting retraumatization in leadership

*Please note that this is workshop will include both didactic and experiential learning components. The experiential learning structures include demonstrations of psychodrama and other experiential processes which often include (optional) personal disclosures from participants. While personal growth is often a byproduct of experiential learning in psychodrama, the primary purpose of this workshop is training. If you are seeking a workshop for personal growth, or seeking a professional training event that is entirely didactic (lecture/powerpoint), this is probably not the best workshop for you.
