Webinar Series: Creating a Trauma-Informed Workplace

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 (2:00 PM - 4:00 PM) (EDT)


This training takes place over the course of three days: April 11, 18, and 25, from 2-4pm ET each day.

Acknowledging and effectively intervening in stress and trauma builds a resilient workforce better able to manage crisis in our lives, organization, and community. This is why it is important to develop a trauma-informed workplace. But what does it mean to be trauma-informed, and how can nonprofits build such an environment for their own teams?

In this workshop, participants will learn what it means to be trauma-informed, as well as some of the basic principles of a trauma-informed workplace. These principles are applicable to any size or type of nonprofit, and create a strengths-based framework grounded in the understanding of and response to the impact of trauma to approach relationships.

Additionally, participants will also learn some strategies for managing their own experiences of stress and trauma, and explore how supervisors can better support their supervisees during times of stress and trauma.

This workshop is geared toward supervisors looking to build their skills in recognizing and managing stress responses.

About the Presenter

Lisa Allred started advocating for survivors of violence in college when she founded an Acquaintance Rape Education Program that was incorporated into orientation for all first-year students at Wake Forest University. This led her to working as a crisis therapist for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence and to spearheading movements in North Carolina to change laws on marital rape and stalking. After getting her licensed clinical social worker degree, she became the clinical director for a sexual abuse evaluation program at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in child psychiatry. After another decade as a clinician and trainer, she switched gears and went into nonprofit management, specializing in program evaluation and development, grant writing, and clinical supervision. To round out her experience, she has spent 25 years providing trainings for therapists, nonprofit leaders, and graduate students at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. Her training specialties include communication and conflict, stress management (in 10 minutes or less), creating trauma-informed workplaces, motivation, child development, program evaluation, grant-writing, and clinical practice. She loves to help organizations and people become more focused and effective by improving their systems and motivating their staff.
