Adopting a Trauma-Informed Perspective in Social Work Practice and Supervision

NASW New York State

9 a.m.-4 p.m. ET

Trauma informed (TI) social work practice is not a new way of working with clients. Rather it represents best practices in social work and is consistent with the core values, principles, and ethics of the profession. In the first half of this workshop, the presenter briefly summarizes the trauma-informed perspective and its guiding principles. She then identifies core social work skills that embody TI practice and illustrate their application using case examples taken from a range of practice settings.

Trauma-informed social work practice requires knowledgeable supervision. TI supervision also is not a new approach nor does it require supervisors to adopt a distinctive skill set. Therefore, in the second half of this workshop, the presenter identifies supervisory skills that reflect a TI orientation and presents case examples to illustrate their application.
