Trauma-Informed Leadership

Ryan Gallik & Michael Stahl, The Mental Hygiene Project

Trauma affects the way people live, work, interact with others and also how decisions are made both personally and professionally. It also has an impact on how individuals and teams respond to situations in the workplace. A general population survey conducted in 24 countries showed that more than 70 percent of respondents experienced a traumatic event, and 30.5 percent had experienced four or more events. This program provides a foundation of understanding for trauma informed leadership that will contribute to healthier workplaces where people can thrive and be committed to being and doing their best.
